While it is perfectly reasonable for you to be wary of buying products online, this website is my 6-year-old, specifically modified (by me to my requirements) form of a standard New Zealand-designed and commonly-used ecommerce website package called Web Widgets (which has over 1000 of its websites currently in use) and is itself trustworthy in its integrity (i.e. things don't get lost with the built-in tracking system for orders).
Payments are optionally via an independent gateway payment entity called DPS/Payment Express who themselves have their logo on most EFTPOS terminals in shops throughout New Zealand. So it is the same company that you normally pay through when you purchase in a physical shop.
When you pay the gateway company (Option 1 at Checkout - using a normal Shopping Cart as per most websites internationally) they hold the money in escrow for 24 hours before releasing it to me, be it a bank deposit or a credit card payment. All required details of the transaction are transferred automatically.
I thought it might be somewhat reassuring to read some testimonials from recent customers who have agreed to let me reproduce their completely unsolicited emails they sent to me as I was really pleased to receive them and they are completely genuine:
No worries at all for when the order arrives. I appreciate the top service. Looking forward to when it arrives.
