Security ConcernsWe understand that you want to feel that your personal details and credit card information is safe when dealing with Aussie Sapphire. Rest assured that we take these concerns very seriously and we use industry standard measures to keep your details safe. You may use your credit card either directly or via PayPal - in both cases, we never see your credit card details which are submitted via encrypted and secure gateways.
NB: we do not store your credit card details in our database. Personal details (address, phone, etc) are stored in our database so we can fulfil your order - this information is protected by the encryption provided by our security certificate.
Our merchant facility is with the National Australia Bank using NSIPS - a secure gateway for internet payments. The most significant aspect of NSIPS design is the security mechanism that greatly improves security and privacy of credit card payment transactions conducted over the Internet. NSIPS uses industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL 3.0) encryption technology to secure communication sessions with customers and merchants. Using firewalls in front of the Payment Gateway (N-SIPS) and within the system, it restricts access to information regarding the payment transactions.
When paying in this way, you will be temporarily redirected to our bank payment gateway so you can submit your details in a secure environment - when the payment has been completed, you will be returned to this website. By using this method, your credit card details are kept safe. The PayPal payment method is similar where card details are not submitted directly to us but are processed within the secure servers of PayPal.
While using your credit card in this way is extremely safe, we can offer a number of offline payment methods for those customers who prefer not to pay online. By selecting the offline payment options, you will receive instructions on how to submit your credit card details to us by fax or mail, or directly transfer your payment using wire transfer (direct deposit or telegraphic transfer).
When paying in this way, simply complete the checkout process and select either the Bank Deposit or Offline Payment options - click here if you require our Offline Payment Order Form.
If you have any concerns or questions about our privacy and security policy or if you would like to ask about alternative payment methods, please contact us.
