We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, or you can use your PayPal account (which can draw from your credit card, checking account, or PayPal balance)
As well we can also send an invoice via PayPal or Google (please see the left side bar for a link and further information).

- We recommend a PayPal account for ease of purchases in the future from us or the many online businesses that accept PayPal (which is the largest online service of this type) as you do not have to re-enter credit card or shipping information with each order.
However if you do Not want to have a PayPal account OR do not wish to use a your PayPal account, it is not necessary to have OR use a PayPal account to purchase from us using a credit card.
See the Purchasing with a Credit Card Screen Shot further down this page.
IMPORTANT: Since We use PayPal hosted shopping carts for added security, IF you have a PayPal account you MUST use your PayPal account that is attached to the credit card OR email on file with PayPal, otherwise your transaction will be automatically rejected
Please Read Step #4 for more if this is a problem.
Please note that this security check is NOT a way PayPal is attempting to force a buyer to have or use a PayPal account, they make money from the transaction regardless of whether or not you directly use a PayPal account or your credit card!
This is simply a way to catch fraud which protects us and the buyer and in fact has lowered the amount of fraudulent sales to our website!
It is noteworthy PayPal uses a secure "https" webpage which encrypts all information versus the "https" protocol used on most webapges which includes those that host their own "Pay Now" buttons.
Please see the note on https at the end of the page for more to see WHY WE utilize this VASTLY MORE SECURE system of payment, even if possibly more inconvenient.
- You can Review your Shopping Cart from any Shopping Page (or click this link to the left), however our PayPal template does not allow to check shopping carts on our many informational pages.
- You can Add 2 Day Air or Expedited Shipping at the end of checkout (see Step 6 in the pictorial below)
- Please note that the number “1” at the beginning of a phone number will cause a failure of this digital checkout system, so please use only the area code plus your local phone number.
- We do not have access to your credit card information (it is encrypted on a secure server to which we do not have access for your security); therefore we cannot add to your order, only refund. As well, unless you set up a PayPal account whereby you make your credit card as the default payment, your credit card information is not stored anywhere & must be re-entered with a new transaction.
- The "Jump to Shopping Cart" buttons are just that; these are a quick way to move about our web pages as many of our web pages have so much information (unlike most web sites that provide little accurate information), that these buttons provide for quick/easy access to the actual Shopping Cart which then will have a Standard PayPal Drop Down Menu to easily add the items you would like to purchase and also change quantities once added.
Please see these screen shots (below) for some tutorials if you are having any difficultly.

Please Click on the Pictures for Enlarge for a Better View
*Step 1; Drop Down Menu
The Drop Down Menu is found on most pages selling items, this is a common "PayPal" menu.
Simply click on the "down" arrow (#1 on the picture) to display the full menu, then bring your curser over the item desired to select the item (#2 on the picture depending upon item). After this click on "Pay Now" to add this to the cart.
From the cart you can change the number of each item from 1 to whatever is desired; you can then click on continue shopping to add more items to the cart from the page you are currently on or go to another page.
*Step 2; Please use the Pay Now Cart for multiple purchases
To purchase using a Credit Card
Please click on the picture to the left for a screen shot of how to change or add multiples of an item once you have selected from a drop down menu. You can change the number of items on the page shown from 1 to any number required (or delete as well).
Sometimes at this point PayPal can have cookie issues, especially if you shop multiple shops that use PayPal. If this happens we have found clearing your browser cache (entire cache history), then closing your browser and re-opening it will solve the problem.
Alternately, simply using another browser such as switching from IE to Firefox (or vice versa) will solve this cache problem
You can also calculate Standard Shipping (Expedited or 2 Day Shipping can be calculated later or you can see our Shipping Rates Chart which includes selected International locations)
*Step 3; Credit Card (or another opportunity to login to your PayPal account)
*Step 4 Choose purchase using a Credit Card when you do not desire a PayPal account, please see the screen shot to the left.
After this proceed by clicking on either "Log in and pay with my PayPal Account" OR "Continue to pay as Guest and do not use PayPal Account" (Credit Card or Credit Card not attached to PayPal account).
HOWEVER if you have or had a PayPal Account and use a Credit Card or email Address "tied" to this account, for security the system WILL require the use of this PayPal Account or otherwise your transaction (credit Card) will be denied.
If you do not know/remember your PayPal Password, we suggest using a different credit card and/or email address for checkout OR you can request a Virtual Terminal Transaction if not possible. For this Virtual Terminal Transaction, please list products, quantities, full name & address, phone number, and we will have an agent call for credit card information (please do NOT include credit card information in email for your protection).
Please note since we use PayPal as an off site checkout for the highest security, Paypal forces the security check of matching your PayPal account to your credit card & email.
|This is NOT the same as a checkout that just accepts PayPal as another payment method and is something that is privately hosted on other less secure private selling websites (not Paypal and NOT a secure https web page as is the PayPal site we redirect to!!).|
This is not a problem/issue with this website!!
THE BOTTOM LINE IS YOU WILL NOT HAVE A MORE SECURE TRANSACTION THAN YOU WOULD IN PURCHASING THROUGH THE PAYPAL WEBSITE WE REDIRECT TO!!
*Step 5; Fill In Credit Card Information
Make to sure to click on "Review and Continue" at the bottom right.
If you are paying with a credit card do NOT click on the "Pay with my PayPal Account at the top unless you have decided to use or open a PayPal account
*Step 6; Make sure your Billing Address Matches your Credit Card
If you have an incorrect billing address or ship to a different address, please make sure that the billing address matches the one on file with your credit card (you can then ship to a different address), otherwise credit card processor security measure will likely reject your purchase.
*At this time you can also use the Drop Down menu to use an Expedited Shipping Method
Further https Information
ALL our online transactions are NOT performed on our website, rather sent to sent to a SECURE https PayPal web page, unlike many web pages who host their own "Pay Now" buttons.
When you pass information on a http web site (which most websites are, just check your browser address), this means that the website is talking to your browser using the regular 'unsecure' language. In other words, it is possible for someone to "eavesdrop" on your computer's conversation with the website.
If you fill out a form on the website, someone might see the information you send to that site.
This is why you never ever enter your credit card number in an http website!
But if the web address begins with https://, that basically means your computer is talking to the website in a secure code that no one can eavesdrop on.
For this reason, WE ALSO CANNOT access your credit card information should you desire to add to an existing order. For this, a new order must be processed or you must request an invoice (via our Contact email). We will then combine orders as per our Shipping Policy Page assuming the order has not already been shipped.
