SECURE ONLINE SHOPPING
At Alternative Brewing we understand the importance of providing secure online transactions for our customers. We are committed to this and do so by utilising the latest technology during your shopping experience to guarantee your details are safe and protected. This means:
- Payments are fully automated with an immediate response for transparency so you know when payments have been processed.
- We employ Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocols to ensure information provided over the internet is transmitted securely. You can identify this by the lock icon on the left of the address bar on pages transferring sensitive information for your security.
- All Cardholder information is stored and processed through Braintree Payment Gateway's secure data centre in accordance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), further protecting your credit card information.
We have partnered with Braintree, a PayPal Company, to process all online credit card transactions to ensure compliance with PCI DSS. This means that we are not exposed to and do not store your credit card information during online credit card transactions. For more information about Braintree and online credit card payments, please visit www.braintreepayments.com/au
Payment is also possible through PayPal and Afterpay for orders placed online, or alternatively, we do accept payment by direct bank transfer but you will need to contact one of our team members directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or using our online contact form.
