Our secure online checkout primarily accepts payments via Visa®, MasterCard® and PayPal®.

At Icariin Health™, checkout and payment security is of primary importance. We want our customers to have the most enjoyable and assured shopping experience possible, this is why we use the very best payment structure that comes with a 'SSL Certified' and 'PCI DSS Compliant' checkout system to safely handle your personal data without risk of fraudulent activity. To further increase security we use 'PayPal Payments Pro UK' at the final stage in our payment system to handle every transaction with 100% security.
If this all sounds confusing, don't worry we shall break it down for you below:
SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organisations details. When installed on a web-server, it activates both the 'padlock' and the 'https://' protocol in the address bar at the top of the browser. This in turn enables secure connections from a web-server to a browser. Typically, SSL is used to secure payment transactions, data transfer and logins, and more recently is becoming the norm to have SSL site-wide.
All Icariin Health™ web-stores are 100% SSL Certified, not only at checkout stage but throughout our entire website, meaning that you can enjoy browsing all our web-stores in full the confidence of site-wide SSL privacy the entire time.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organisations that handle Credit Card and Debit Card information. Defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, the standard was created to increase controls around payment card data to reduce card fraud via its exposure. If you want to sell online, and accept payments from MasterCard® or Visa® cards, your checkout system needs to be PCI compliant.
There are six categories of PCI standards that must be met in order for a merchant to be deemed compliant:
Our checkout system meets all the above standards.
PayPal Payments Pro is a service that allows online store owners like ourselves here at Icariin Health™ to take Credit Card, Debit Card and direct PayPal payments with no transaction charge to you the customer. But even better than that, PayPal Payments Pro offers the highest level of security when it comes to taking payments, with its unmatched fraud protection facilities including 3-D Secure, fraud screening, address verification, card verification and 128-bit encryption.
Due to the way in which PayPal Payments Pro works, we at Icariin Health™ never handle your card details in person, hence we never at any point see your card number, expiry date or 3 digit security code. We simply receive an order with all the details we require to complete your order i.e. name, address, contact info and details of the actual products ordered.
Safe shopping is a vital factor for the success of any online business, which is why we guarantee that our checkout and payment gateway meets all the most up-to-date and advanced payment security standards required for online retail.
That's right, we do NOT run an 'order subscription' service, nor can we repeat a transaction/order for you on your behalf. Remember we only have your name and address for shipping reasons, we do NOT store or have access to any of our customers payment/card details, that's all dealt with securely by PayPal (as per the information above). When you make a purchase with us, the order is simply shipped out to you and then closed. If you wish to place a repeat order you will need to place a completely fresh order with us by going through our checkout again in the usual way.
