We take online security seriously - our family's livelihood depends upon our good reputation.
We have implemented the appropriate security measures for protection of this site and your personal information, including your name, address and credit card information, from unauthorised access or disclosure. We never receive, view or have access to your credit card details - the entire payment process is contained within the Paypal transactional website (see payment process below for more details).
To help ensure your shopping experience is safe, simple and secure, the sisson website uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This encrypts and protects the data you input during the purchasing process.
VIDEO HELP: For those unaccustomed to buying online, we have prepared this short 'How-To' video that details the process of purchasing a print from our webstore.
Our online photography archive and shoppping cart are hosted by Photoshelter, one of the industry's largest cloud based archives for professional photographers. Photoshelter handle millions of secure transactions annually and by the time that your order moves through to the 'Cart' stage of checkout you will be in the capable hands of their certified secure HTTPS: servers.
Once you have finalised your order and pressed 'Check Out' you will be passed to Paypal for online payment - you do NOT need a Paypal account - just your credit card. Paypal currently has over 130 million active account holders and sets the standard for online security and buyer protection.
All credit card transactions pass through Paypal and your card details are encrypted in a secure host environment.
Bank Deposits (SAVE 5%)
Payment via direct bank credit is most welcome - so welcome in fact that we pass on the 5% credit card fee saving to direct credit customers!. However, we have to perform a manual sales transaction as this payment method is not currently supported by the website.
To order and pay this way simply contact us using the enquire tab on the image(s) that you have selected - one of our two-person team (Todd or Sarah :) will help you out.
Please note that goods can only be dispatched when deposits have cleared to sisson.
