Our online payments are handled by Secure Hosting, a well established firm that has been trading since 1998.
We have designed VeggieStuff.com to work with their Universal Payement Gateway system. We collect your order details on our website which records the order before you are then sent to the Secure Hosting servers where you can safely enter you details so they can process the card payments. Their servers use 128-bit encryption to protect your card data.
We use a 128bit encryption 'key' means that it is not at all likely that someone could decode the data - There are so many possible keys with 128bit that it would take significantly longer than the age of the universe to "guess" one.
2 bit encryption would be 2x2 giving 4 key combinations, 5 bit would be 2x2x2x2x2 = 32 key combinations.
128-bit encryptions means that there are OVER 339,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 different possible keys. Even taking into consideration that computers in the future may get faster and faster it would take thousands of millions of years to crack the code and decrypt your card details - by which time you will probably not need to worry about it!
So please feel confident to leave your payment details with us on your orders.
The image here shows the following details that prove that the payment page is secure:
1. Look for the "s" after "http" in the address whenever you are about to enter sensitive information, such as a credit-card number, into a form on a Web site. This means your connection is secured by 128bit encryption.
2. The padlock symbol lets you know that you are using encryption.
If this encryption is so good why is there so much Internet fraud?
Well we have the media to thank for that feeling (as with many scares). What is not well reported is that the vast majority of fraudulent card use is against RETAILERS with cards stolen in the physical world, such as restaurants, petrol stations and high street shops, sometimes offices even from the unshredded rubbish they throw out each week. We have never had a customer who has had their card compromised by shopping online, however we have seen many people attempt to purchase products from us with stolen cards (and fail of course!)
In these cases its the retailer that usually loses out if they send the goods. Your bank should automatically reimburse your card for transactions you did not authorise and the funds are taken back from the retailer by the card issuer. So simply using your card online will not put you at higher risk than handing it over to dozens of strangers every week in shops, pubs, restaurants etc... especially if you follow the advice above and look for the signs that the website you are connected to is secure.
If you still feel uneasy about paying with your card you can place your order online and then call us with your card details or fax them. We can then process them on a terminal just like you see in shops that process the cards down a fixed land line.
