Is your site secure?
Shopping is secure on http://www.shoeaholics.com
We utilise industry-standard secure sockets layer (ssl) technology to allow for the encryption of potentially sensitive information such as your name, address and other critically sensitive information like your credit card details. Information passed between your computer and our website cannot be read in the event someone else intercepts it. This technology includes the following features:
- Authentication - this assures your browser that your data is being sent to the correct computer server, and that the server is secure.
- Encryption - this encodes the data, so that it cannot be read by anyone other than the secure server.
- Data integrity - this checks the data being transferred to ensure it has not been altered.
At what stage is payment taken from my card?
We ask your bank for authorisation of your debit/credit card when you place an order with us. However, your card will only be charged when we despatch your goods to you; you’ll receive an email from us to confirm which items are being sent and the exact amount charged to your card. So if for any reason we are unable to send any items you’ll only be charged for the items we do send.
Please note, if you pay using PayPal or a Gift Card then payment is taken at the point of purchase. However if any goods are cancelled your PayPal account and gift card will be refunded back to you.
