We chose to use a payment vendor called Stripe, who is audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. To accomplish this, Stripe uses best-in-class security tools and practices to maintain a high level of security.

We accept major debit and credit cards, bank transfers, BACS and contactless payments (collection only).

All cards are processed via secure server technology and are subject to validation and authorisation by both the card issuer and us. We do not keep your credit and debit card information on file. This ensures that we maintain a safe and secure payment process.
