Credit Card Security & Fraud:
The security of all credit card transactions is of paramount importance to Elpro Direct. To protect our valued customers, your credit card details are encrypted by merchant back office, and are not stored on the Elpro Direct server in any useable form.
MasterCard and Visa orders will only be accepted from persons who are authorized by the cardholder to place such orders. To prevent credit card fraud, all transactions are verified by our Merchant system before processing.
Our shopping cart and merchant system will encrypt and pass the information entered by the shopper to their banking partners who pass it to the Card Issuer (your credit card company) for comparison with their records. The results of the comparison are then passed back to Elpro Direct for authorization.
To pass these verification checks, the billing address (including zip/post code) must be the address to which the card statement is currently sent, the billing address (including zip/post code) must also match the address held by the Card Issuer exactly, the card issue country must match these two addresses and the Security Code must match that held by the Card Issuer exactly. Card issue countries should be the same as the shipping address or additional checks will be required.
If PayPal is selected as the payment option, the Elpro Direct shopping cart will process it and you will be taken to the PayPal for payment processing site. Once this is complete, you will be returned to the Elpro Direct site so you can continue browsing our website. Notification of your order and your PayPal payment will be sent directly to us, there will be nothing more that you need to do.
If a transaction fails these checks, our merchant systems will either decline the transaction or post a warning with your order. Declined orders are not accepted by. Orders issued with a warning will be subject to further verification by Elpro Direct representatives. These checks will include, but are not limited to, independent verification of the STD area code on the phone number and shipping address provided on the order form, an email enquiry and a personal phone call to the person being billed for the transaction. If the area code does not match the zip/post code, the shipping address cannot be verified or the phone number is not in service (and an alternative phone number is not provided) the order will be deleted. It is Elpro Directs policy to carry out all necessary verification checks on orders issued with a warning. Elpro Direct reserves the right to decline any and all orders which do not comply with these verification checks.
