Make sure your laptop spares are purchased via a secure payment method

All customers with their eyes open will have seen a proliferation in the number of ‘Chinese’ looking shell websites that are being launched in the UK. One of the things customers should be especially aware of is the payment security and encryption that is being used in a website’s checkout process.
Firstly make sure that the http address on the website is secure to make sure you connection to the website is secure. Make sure the payment gateway is legitimate and authorised with the FSA regulatory authorities. Commonly known gateways include Paypal, Sagepay and World Pay. Laptop Power UK use Sagepay on our UK website and Ogone, Europe’s leading gateway throughout our European network.
Other general advice is to make sure you are always given an invoice and a payment reference. Check that the Company is registered, and has its name and address clearly displayed on their website. Many websites purporting to be from the UK are in fact international sellers, resulting in long lead times, language barriers when it comes to sorting out problems, and also potential duty to pay since the goods received have been dispatched from abroad.
