Is it safe to pay online using my card?
Cafe Racer Garage uses a state-of-the-art fraud detection and prevention mechanism. This solution allows verification of the authenticity of online payments, while ensuring our clients data integrity and security, as well as their identification.
This security feature is provided via SSL technology (Secure Socket Layer) that encrypts the communications between the client’s computer and our server, so that they cannot be intercepted. Thus, Cafe Racer Garage reserves the right to refuse any order paid by a transaction considered illicit. All and any activities considered illegal will be immediately reported to the competent authorities.
3D Secure is a communication protocol designed to improve online payments and to enable the authentication of the card user by the credit card issuer. When paying at an online store, a credit card validation process is activated. If the credit card is considered valid, 3D Secure protocol security systems check the client’s identity, resorting in real time to the credit card issuer. The issuer validates the client’s identity and informs the store system that the card being used is legitimate.
The goal is to protect credit card users, minimising the possibility of fraudulent credit card use and improving the overall transaction performance. This protocol is used by Visa, with the ‘Verified by Visa’ designation, and by Mastercard, with the ‘SecureCode’ designation.
How is the credit card payment processed?
After selecting the credit card payment option and clicking on ‘Place Order’, the client is directed to the Stripe payment platform where the necessary credit card data needs to be inserted, consisting of the credit card number, expiration date and security code. Finally, clicking on the button ‘I validate my payment’ will set the transaction in motion.
If the payment is not accepted, an error message will appear in the shopping cart window. In such an event, it is recommended to attempt the transaction again. If the problem persists however, we advise the client to contact his/her bank or credit card issuer for further information.
Once the payment is finalised, the amount will be charged from the client’s credit card account. If, for any reason, it proves necessary to cancel the order, whether completely or partially, we will reimburse the corresponding amount within a maximum term of 5 working days. The transaction will show on the client’s credit card extract after 2 working days, counting from the reimbursement date.
To protect our clients from potential frauds, we may ask for additional information to facilitate the payment’s assessment. If such a request is made but we fail to get a reply within 3 business days, we will cancel the order and proceed to reimburse the payment.
Warning: Payments are always charged in US Dollars , even if prices are displayed in other currencies. Some banking entities may charge currency exchange rates. Cafe Racer Garage is totally alien to this fact and is not to be held responsible for it.
