e buyer (secure server?)

  [email protected] 18:21 04 May 2007

hello all, i have today (very reluctantly!) bought another copy of windows xp, i have looked at a lot of products in the past from e-buyer, as they seem very good value, it was only when i got to the checkout i noticed no padlock or logging into secure server message, yet they were asking for all my card details, this scared me off and i bought elsewhere.
i thought e-buyer was a huge concern and wondered if i had found a phishing site but macafee, norton and ff all said it's signings were true? it's puzzled me a little

When you go to checkout the http// changes to https// meaning this is a secure connection for payment transactions.

If you pay Ebuyer via the 'new' Google checkout (as suggested by Ebuyer), you can save an extra £10.00 on anything over £30.00 I think!.

I have bought several things via Google Checkout now - with £10 off each purchase made, provided they are separate transactions.

All went smoothly and I didn't have to put in loads of details each time I placed an order.

Very happy with the scheme and I will use it whenever possible.
