Reward Points Exchange Rates
The value of reward points is determined by an exchange rate of both currency spent on products to points, and an exchange rate of points earned to currency for spending on future purchases.
Redeeming Reward Points
You can redeem your reward points at checkout. If you have accumulated enough points to redeem them you will have the option of using points as one of the payment methods. The option to use reward points, as well as your balance and the monetary equivalent this balance, will be shown to you in the Payment Method area of the checkout. Redeemable reward points can be used in conjunction with other payment methods such as credit cards, gift cards and more.
Reward Points Minimums and Maximums
Reward points may be capped at a minimum value required for redemption. If this option is selected you will not be able to use your reward points until you accrue a minimum number of points, at which point they will become available for redemption.
Reward points may also be capped at the maximum value of points which can be accrued. If this option is selected you will need to redeem your accrued points before you are able to earn more points.
Managing My Reward Points
You have the ability to view and manage your points through your Customer Account. From your account you will be able to view your total points (and currency equivalent), minimum needed to redeem, whether you have reached the maximum points limit and a cumulative history of points acquired, redeemed and lost. The history record will retain and display historical rates and currency for informational purposes. The history will also show you comprehensive informational messages regarding points, including expiration notifications.
Reward Points Expiration
Reward points can be set to expire. Points will expire in the order form which they were first earned.
Note: You can sign up to receive email notifications each time your balance changes when you either earn, redeem or lose points, as well as point expiration notifications. This option is found in the Reward Points section of the My Account area.
The security of your payment card information is very important to us and forms part of our terms and conditions (see page for more information). We use secure pages to process your personal information and this is apparent when you see a locked padlock device in the address line of your web browser. You should always look for this when shopping online.
OUR PAYMENT SYSTEM
We use a external third parties – PayPal and STRIPE y to process your payment to us – companies whose reputation is excellent. When you place an order, you are directed to their site which is secure. They hold your payment information, we do not have access to your data. They also fraud screen your payment which protects us from fraudulent transactions.
The payment card system is regulated by the Payment Card Industry (PCI). Any trader who takes payment information is bound by their regulation and is deemed after a thorough investigation to be “compliant”. This means that we do not have access to your information but it also means that we have to undergo quarterly computer scans of our systems to ensure that we remain PCI compliant. There is a penalty system which can be invoked if we are deemed to not be PCI compliant.
PHONE ORDERS (MAIL ORDER TELEPHONE ORDER – MOTO)
Telephone orders are regulated by the PCI but because of human involvement they are by definition less secure than computer systems. This is why we prefer not to take phone orders. The PCI Compliance means that we have to destroy any payment information that you give us, but we would do this anyway if PCI Compliance did not exist. We can guarantee that we do this, but we still prefer that you shop on our web site which is more secure for you and for us.
