You can purchase
FashionCAD by credit card (MasterCard or VISA) or by direct bank funds transfer. If you have any questions or queries about payment or method of payment then please contact us by clicking on the letter at the top of this page.

Pay by Credit Card :-

Most of us are nervous about providing our personal and credit card details digitally via email or the internet for purchases.
Hence we provide a more secure (for you) method where you can download an order form and fax it to us, (or scan it and include the scanned image as an email attachment). In this way your details cannot be spyed on or intercepted digitally.

When you purchase in your local store you show the shopkeeper your credit card and he turns it over and compares your signature with the signature on the card. We cannot physically see you card and hence you will also be required to provide a scanned image (or fax) of the reverse of your credit card. This is to confirm that the person making the purchase has the card in their possession. In this way if you have your card in your possession then no-one else can attempt to purchase using your card numbers.

We hope you'll appreciate that we are trying to protect the interests of the person named on the credit card and to enable you to purchase with confidence.
