Secured Online Purchasing

Using our Web Site is Completely Safe!

At Andean Wares Wholesale, we realize that shopping online can feel a bit risky. However, the truth of the matter is that advances in secure server technology have made shopping at Andean Wares Wholesale even safer than using your credit card to shop around town or over the phone:  No human being will ever see your complete credit card information as it happens when you shop in a brick and mortar store.

How is this possible?  All online transactions at the Andean Wares Wholesale web site are handled with with state of the art 128 bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. When you enter your credit card number and personal information into the order form, it is transmitted across the Internet in an encrypted (scrambled) form, and then is partially decoded when it gets to us (we only see the last four digits of any credit card). Our merchant provider, Linkpoint, receives the scrambled information, to process your charge or debit.  Therefore, the information cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet and no human being ever has access to your financial information, therefore eliminating any possibility of mishandling or unscrupulous use

Linkpoint, the leading provider of digital trust services, has been processing credit cards securely over the Internet since 1995 and currently provides secure payment services for more than 60,000 online merchants.  Linkpoint does not store the credit card number either:  Once an approval code has been obtained for the purchase, the card's information is purged.  The whole operation takes less than 1 minute.  After 30 days, Andean Wares Wholesale erases the last 4 credit card digits from your order's records.

Using your credit card affords you the added advantage of knowing that, in the event that there is a problem with your purchase, the credit card company will remove the purchase from your bill and Andean Wares Wholesale will not be paid. Furthermore, in the extremely unlikely event that shopping at Andean Wares Wholesale leads to an unauthorized use of your credit card, most financial institutions either cover all of the resultant charges or limit your liability to $50 (refer to the Fair Credit Billing Act or your credit card agreement for further details). Should the bank not cover this additional $50 liability, Andean Wares Wholesale will cover it, provided that the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted from an error on the part of Andean Wares Wholesale, as a result of purchases made on Andean Wares Wholesale through the secure server, and through no fault of your own. In short, using your credit card at Andean Wares Wholesale is absolutely safe - we guarantee it.

If you are still uneasy about placing your order online, please feel free to place your order by phone, fax or mail.
