Methods of payment

Credit Card (available within Germany and EU, not available for TECHNIKdirekt Business customers)

TECHNIKdirekt accepts Visa or MasterCard®.

Adress Verification System (AVS), MasterCard SecureCode™ and Verified by Visa guarantee the security of your personal data.
Furthermore for the processing of your credit card details and personal data we employ the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) which encrypts all submitted information. This is how we guarantee your security and privacy: the access of a third party to your personal data is basically unauthorized.

Your credit card data are transmitted to us in encrypted form. They will be treated as confidential. Your credit card data will neither be communicated to a third party nor be saved (read our Privacy Policy).

The payment will be pre-authorized by your credit card issuing bank when you submit your order. This means that the amount to pay will be reserved for TECHNIKdirekt. In case of a longer delivery delay, the request for the authorization of the payment will be repeated automatically several times.

We only charge the credit card when we start preparing your goods for dispatch.
The same is valid if your order ships in more than one shipment. We only charge you for the items that are shipped.

Useful tips for credit card payment:

  • orders paid by credit card are to be submitted by the credit card owner himself and only on line
  • we only accept the above mentioned credit card types: Visa and MasterCard.
  • We cannot accept other credit card types, such as virtual credit cards or pre-paid credit cards.

This is how it works:

  • choose the items you wish to order and proceed with the order until 4. Payment Method
  • choose the credit card type
  • enter the credit card type, the name of the owner, the entire credit card number (without blanks) as well as the correct expiration date. You will find the triple-digit check number on the reverse side of your credit card.

We will inform you via e-mail about the delivery date. The amount to pay will be pre-authorized by your bank.
Your credit card will actually be charged when the ordered item is getting prepared for dispatch.
