The Watch Collector - Online security and buying with confidence

It’s a sad fact that whilst the world wide web has changed for ever the way we all shop it is also a feeding ground for criminals who can steal your credit card data to make fraudulent purchases and sadly we at the watch collector have been the victim of this type of fraud so we take this matter extremely seriously for both the protection of our valued clients as well as ourselves.

Online payment methods

Credit / Debit card payments:

All Debit and credit card payments are processed using 3D secure authentication

3D secure adds an extra level of security when it comes to shopping online. With the fraud prevention security in place, it can help to combat against any payment fraud, Your credit card company will request a password (which you will already have set up already you’re your bank) or you will need to enter an authentication code (which will be automatically sent to your confirmed mobile phone number).

These methods are being used by the banks to stop criminals using stolen card details for online purchases

Pay pal:

In actuality, using PayPal may be even safer than using a check or your credit card or bank account to make a purchase. With PayPal, your financial data is stored away in a single online "vault", whereas the same can't be said when transmitting credit card or bank data online on the internet.

Bank transfer for all purchases in excess of £25,000
