PAYPAL

PayPal is a widely used electronic payment processor that allows customers to send money securely without giving any bank information to the merchant. It is a service which can be used even without having a Paypal Account and is free of charge for the buyer.

To pay via Paypal, simply click the Paypal option at checkout. You will be able to pay via your Paypal account via the balance in there or with your bank cards.

If you do not wish to use Paypal, we have an alternative card gateway called Stripe.

STRIPE

Stripe is also an electronic payment processor that allows customers to send money securely without giving any bank information to the merchant. However it is a gateway that doesn't behave like a bank account like Paypal can. It simply processes your card number and passes the proceeds to the merchant. It's much simpler and can be used without leaving the Sew Curvy Website. Also free of charge to the buyer.

If you want to avoid Paypal and just put your card details in and go, then use Stripe, select the relevant credit card icon at checkout.

Stripe also works really easily on your phone! You simply put your goods in the cart, select your method of payment, input the numbers on this screen and press 'continue' to purchase! Simple and secure.

BANK TRANSFER

UK customers can pay via UK bank transfer.  Please see the image for details of where to send your money.  Payment details are also sent in your confirmation email.

If payment is not received within 24 hours, your order will be cancelled.  Unfortunately I do not have the resources to keep checking, or to chase.  You will receive a notification if your order has been cancelled due to non payment.  Sometimes people get a bit jumbled and place two orders, one by BT and one by PP - that's fine, I will contact you if I see any strange anomolies with your order(s).

Overseas Bank Transfers using WISE

This used to be something I could only offer to UK customers as payment must be in GBP sterling.

However overseas customers can now use a fantastic service called Transferwise. This is a banking service which picks the best exchange rate of the moment and pays whichever merchant you tell it to. It also saves their details so there is no faffing about next time you need to order!  Please let me know if you would like to pay by Wise.
