1. Payment Methods
We accept payments via PayPal with PayPal Express Checkout. Express Checkout gives you a simplified checkout experience that keeps you local to our website and/or mobile app throughout the payment authorization process and lets you use your PayPal balance, bank account, or credit card to pay without sharing or entering any sensitive information on our site.*
1.2. Cash on Delivery (Domestic/CY Orders ONLY)
You can also choose ‘Cash on Delivery’ as your payment method during checkout. You will pay for your order when it will be delivered to you by our own delivery team. The driver will collect the money and give you the receipt.**
The final amount includes all taxes and charges. The final order amount is the amount you will have to pay. For more information you can read out Terms & Conditions.
* We will never have access to your credit card details. Transaction security is provided by PayPal (the safest way of online payment). If for some reasons you would like to cancel your order or our company can not deliver it to you we will issue a 100% refund to your card. Payments by card are secure and convenient. We do not charge any extra commissions for card payments.
** Please note that we do not accept cheques. All payments are in EURO (€).

2.2. PayPayflow Gateway
PayPayflow Gateway is PayPal’s secure and open payment gateway.

At checkout, you enter your payment details on a secure, PCI-compliant template hosted by PayPal.
As with all gateways, you can think of Payflow as the ”credit card machine” of the internet. It’s what your customers will ”swipe” their cards through. With Payflow, you can accept all major credit and debit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. Payflow also supports accepting payments in multiple currencies, allowing international customers the comfort and convenience of paying in their own currency. The PayPal Payflow gateway includes several great features to facilitate your payment process, including recurring billing, a hosted payment page option, virtual terminal, and robust reporting.
