- Information about PayPal -
PayPal is an internationally recognized e-commerce provider, with almost 200 million members worldwide. Purchasing through PayPal (either with your credit card or an electronic funds transfer directly from your checking account) is fast, easy, and 100% secure. PayPal has very strict procedures to ensure complete e-commerce security; this protects both the merchant and the customer.
To make a PayPal purchase, just follow the simple instructions that appear in the pop-up window that automatically tabulates your order when you select the "PayPal - Add to Cart" button. In every respect, the PayPal purchasing option functions just like the online checkout available on millions of commercial web-sites. Paypal is available as an automated online payment option for the purchase of Limited-Editions (and also catalogs) only; all Payapl orders of Limited-Editions are shipped via Xpresspost International Courier, and are completely trackable online with the Xpresspost shipping number you will receive with your Order Verification via e-mail within a few days after you place your order. Catalogs are shipped via air mail.
ALL PayPal purchases MUST conform to the following guidelines:
1) PayPal orders can be accepted from customers in pre-approved countries only (see the list at the bottom of this page); customers in other countries must purchase via the Mail-Order option.
2) PayPal orders can be made from one PayPal account only; payments from more than one PayPal account are not permitted.
3) PayPal orders can only be shipped to a "Confirmed Address" - the address to which the purchaser's credit card statement is sent. Purchases that must be sent to an address other than the "Confirmed Address" must purchase via the Mail-Order option.
The following information about PayPal is quoted from their web-site at www.PayPal.com:
"PayPal enables any business or consumer with an email address to securely, conveniently, and cost-effectively send and receive payments online. Our network builds on the existing financial infrastructure of bank accounts and credit cards to create a global, real-time payment solution. We deliver a product ideally suited for small businesses, online merchants, individuals and others currently underserved by traditional payment mechanisms.
"We seek to become the global standard for online payments, offering our service to users in 38 countries including the United States. We have over 35 million registered users, including more than 3 million business accounts. Our account base is growing by an average of 28,000 accounts per day, with virtually no traditional sales or marketing.
"The size of our network and widening acceptance of our product has helped us become the leading payment network for online auction websites, including eBay. PayPal is also being increasingly used at other e-commerce sites, for the sale of goods such as electronics and household items, the sale of services such as web design and travel, and the sale of digital content. Offline businesses, including lawyers, contractors and physicians, have increasingly begun to receive payments online through PayPal. PayPal's service, which lets users send payments for free, can be used from PCs or Web-enabled mobile phones.
"Founded by Peter Thiel and Max Levchin, PayPal is a publicly traded company headquartered in Palo Alto, California. PayPal is the 2002 SIIA Codie Awards winner for "Best eCommerce Solution" and is recognized by PC Magazine as one of "The Top 100 Web Sites."
