Secure SSL encryption is used to protect your private information.
It is not necessary to have a PayPal account in order to pay with your credit or debit card. However, you do have the option to sign up for an account with PayPal, which is absolutely free.

**IMPORTANT NOTE** For the safe arrival of your merchandise, we only ship to confirmed addresses. An address is considered "confirmed" if your credit card billing address matches your shipping address (i.e., your shipping address would need to be the same address where you receive your credit card statements). We ship to the payment address that is provided to us by your credit card company, bank, and/or PayPal.
Other Methods of Payment Accepted:
Postal Money Orders are also accepted. Postal Money Orders can be purchased at your local Post Office. If you are paying by money order, payment is expected within 5-7 days. If payment is not received within 10 days, the sale will be considered null and void and the item(s) purchased will be returned to catalog inventory and made available for sale.
