PayPal Express

What is PayPal Express Checkout?

PayPal Express Checkout is a global payment gateway, in use by millions of businesses around the world.Its 100% safe and you can pay with all main credit cards

It allows online stores to accept payment either with a credit or debit card (used by the customer) or by a customer logging into their PayPal account and making payment (either with a stored credit/debit card or via Direct Debit or bank transfer).

When you enable PayPal Express Checkout on your store, at the bottom of the basket page and checkout form, the customer will be shown a 'Pay by PayPal' button.

Security and online shopping

For greater peace of mind for our customers when ordering online and to speed up the progress of orders H.Preston has adopted the Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode fraud prevention schemes (often referred to as "3D-Secure").

We encourage our customers to sign up to these schemes which entail registering your card with Visa or Mastercard. For more information on these schemes and how to enrol your card (if you have not already) then please click on the relevant link below

Do you accept payments from cards which are not enrolled in the Verified by Visa or MasterCard Secure Code schemes?

We will continue to accept cards which are not registered under the schemes although for fraud prevention purposes there may be a delay in processing your order as we perform additional checks and occasionally we may request further information from you prior to releasing any goods.

Additionally we will NOT ship to a delivery address that differs from the registered card address unless they are paid for using a Verified by Visa or MasterCard Secure Code enrolled card OR we are able to verify that you are a customer with a history of ordering from us to your registered card address that dates back at least 3 months.
