Pay Securely Online
One of the quickest and easiest way to see if a site is secure, is to look for a 'padlock' symbol. On the Sequins & Sand website, ours appears when you 'check out' - it appears in the bottom right hand corner of the Shopping Basket page. In the browser window of the Check Out page, at the top of the screen to you will see that it says "https".....which is another way of letting you know the page is secure.
The 'padlock' and "https" exists because we have an SSL certificate. When you make a purchase on the Web and notice the closed lock icon at the top or bottom of your browser or a HTTPS:// prefix in the URL, it means you have established a secure SSL connection.
Our 128-bit SSL security system encodes your credit card and contact details to ensure their safety. No data transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, just as no store card transaction can be completely without risk of fraud.
If you click on this seal, more information about our security certificate can be found:

For international fund transfers, you will need to go into your bank to do this as to the best of our knowledge, online banking facilities do not cater for international transactions at this stage. Australia it is called a Telegraphic Transfer and your bank will charge a fee to organise this. Here in Australia for example, it currently costs us about AUD$30 to send a telegraphic transfer to the US. You will need to find out from your bank how to conduct these funds transfers internationally and what fees are involved.
