Credit cards are now fully accepted

Stripe and PayPal

We have always accepted credit cards thanks to a 6-year old PayPal integration. It was great at the beginning, when it was not so easy for smaller companies to get set-up for payments on the web. We still support PayPal and we have no intentions of switching it off, but I am pleased to announce that you can make credit card payments directly on our site, without having to go through the PayPal process. This was a frequent request from some of our customers, who prefer a simpler and a more direct way of paying.

Our new integration is done with Stripe, who are a very developer-friendly, security-conscious (we never┬ástore your card number)┬ápayment processor. This is now the default payment option when you reach the checkout. It takes all major cards. However, if you have any difficulties, you can still select the PayPal option and try your card that way, as PayPal follows a different process and supports more payment options in some countries.

Of course, we are still happy to accept POs and pro-forma payments, which are more suitable for group buying. All of this is in the same place, at the checkout. If you have any questions, please contact us.
