Can you walk me through my payment using PayPal?

PayPal is a very easy online banking system. If you do not have a Pay Pal account, don't worry -- Pay Pal will still process your credit card the same as any other credit card processor. 

If you do not have an account, simply click on the link that reads "Don't have a PayPal account?" during checkout to securely enter your credit card and shipping information. 

However, if you have not used it before you may find these notes useful. 

1. Click on the relevant PayPal button (Add to Cart) on the web site. You will then be taken to the PayPal site and shown a page which gives details of what you are paying for and how much. When ready to checkout click "Proceed to Checkout". 

2. If you don't have a PayPal account Click the "continue" link at "Don't have a PayPal account?". Otherwise login with your PayPal Account. 

3. You will then be taken to a page that asks you for your details. Just fill in your name, address, postcode, phone, and email. Click "Review Order and Continue". 

4. If this is your "DEPOSIT" Click "Pay Now". If you are paying the "Balance Due" On this page you will be able to specify your shipping address and shipping method (UPS 2nd Day Air or UPS Ground), once you have looked over your shipping address and specified your shipping click "Pay Now". 

5. You will then be taken to a "thank you and receipt ID" page. Also a detailed receipt will be email to your email address specified in your PayPal checkout. 

We understand that some people prefer not to use PayPal for various reasons, and we'll be adding additional payment methods as we move forward. 

If paying by check, make the check payable to: Anna Agsten, and mail it to:

PayPal payment systems: 

The security of your information, transactions, and money is the core of our business and our top priority. We pride ourselves in taking extra measures to protect you and to insure your trust so we'll have you as a satisfied customer for years to come. 

PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to their system using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or login to their site, their server checks that you're using an approved browser - one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher. 

Once your information reaches PayPal, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the Internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers. 

The information you give us (which does not include credit card information ) is handled with the same sincerity. We do not give, or sell, any information to anyone. Your name, address, telephone number and email address are only used for shipping purposes or to contact you if questions arise.
