Thanks for shopping Heinsohn's Country Store! We want your buying experience to be fun but above all - safe and secure. We have a Secure Socket Layer Protocol for our shopping cart and we have NEVER had a credit card number stolen because of a transaction on our site. We are protected by Thawte & ControlScan.
(You can tell when you are protected when you see the"s" in the https:// in the address bar at the top of your browser when you are using the shopping cart.)
You do not have to enter your credit card number just to check out the various shipping charges that we offer for each shipment. We only ask for the credit card after you have filled your cart and are actually ready to buy! You can even use a fictitious name and address so long as you give the correct zip code in the address form. (Please correct the fictitious name and address when you decide to purchase!!!)
We will not sell your email addresses or physical addresses so you should not worry about entering your name & address as you might at some very well-known websites.
By the way, you don't have to submit your credit card number through our secure server at all if you still feel uncomfortable with it. When you go to the first page of our shopping cart, you can select to pay by mail*, by fax or by telephone. We want you to be comfortable in dealing with us!
*If you use mail order and you send a check, it will take 2 weeks to process the check. If you send a Money Order, your order will process immediately!
