A quick note on payment methods...

Recently, more and more customers have been unsure about the safety of using credit cards for online shopping. We have noticed that - probably because of internet fraud being on the increase - the number of customers choosing bank transfer as their preferred payment option has risen significantly.

So, how safe are the individual payment options at Magic and Arts?

Payment by Bank Transfer

Bank Transfer is the oldest payment option in internet shopping, and one of the safest. It is not possible for anyone to use someone else's bank account details unless they also have pin numbers, transaction numbers etc. for this account. So, in practice, this is a very safe option. Magic and Arts is a Trusted Shop certified onlineshop and all payments are secure.

Payment by Credit Card

Credit card payments are definitely one of the more flexible and safe options, despite the bad press they have recently been given. A merchant is only allowed to accept credit card payments after a thorough security check through their bank, including their financial history and proof of their business status not older than 6 weeks. Also, the merchant's website must have SSL-encryption installed for a bank to grant the use of credit cards.

In addition, it is the customer's right to cancel their credit card payment up to 4 weeks after the first payment without having to give any reasons for their cancellation. So, it is clearly in the best interest of the customer to use their credit card for payment, and merchants who offer credit card payments as one of their payment options can definitely be regarded as good business partners.

Also, most people don't know that merchants have to pay the so-called chargeback fees to their bank if a customer cancels their credit card payment (in our case 39.00 Euros). So, it is certainly in the merchant's best interest to avoid any problems and process orders to their customer's satisfaction.

Payment by Paypal and similar methods

Similarly to straight forward credit card payments, payment method Paypal is very advantageous for the customer. Payments are processed through an agent, and can be cancelled if need be. The agent, ie Paypal will check any claims and possibly refund any monies paid.

Payments by Paypal, Debit card or Credit Card are still the easiest and safest option. Debit payments are only available for bank accounts inside Germany. Please check your credit card statement to make sure that debits listed are correct - if not you will always have a fast and secure option to adjust incorrect payments.
