PAYMENT OPTIONS

Online purchases are made easily and securely using your Afterpay account, credit card (Visa and MasterCard), PayPal or ZipPay details. Unfortunately, at present, we cannot accept Home Timber & Hardware gift cards or store credit for online purchases.

Payments are verified and funds are taken from your account straight away.

CREDIT CARD SECURITY

When you provide your credit card details they are securely transferred by a 2048 bit SSL 3.0 Certificate to a site that specialises in managing credit card information (namely, Braintree). Home Timber & Hardware does not store your credit card details in our site or otherwise.

FRAUD PROTECTION

Home Timber & Hardware implements the Fraud Protection services of Braintree to prevent the unauthorised use of customer credit cards by unauthorised individuals. Real-time technology from their partner Kount evaluates hundreds of data points for every transaction to reduce fraudulent transaction attempts, all in just milliseconds. If fraud is detected then the transaction will be flagged as fraudulent and not passed to the bank. This provides an effective mechanism to protect customers and their credit cards from fraud.
