How do I pay for my order?Amazon.com accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express, as well as checks or money orders denominated in U.S. Dollars as payment for book orders.
You Can Pay Online:Credit Card Transactions are Safe at Amazon.com Books. In an article by Rob Pegoraro in The Washington Posts Fast Forward magazine (May 1996), spokesmen for MasterCard International and AT&Ts Universal Card acknowledged that to date, they knew of no cases of Internet credit card fraud. Statistically, its much safer to use your credit card on the Web than to use it in a restaurant or department store.
Amazon.com thinks thats good news, but they still take every possible
precaution to protect the integrity of your credit card information.
Amazon.com Books offers you the choice of using the Netscape Secure Commerce
Server, which encrypts any information you type in. You can safely enter
your entire credit card number on the secure server, and it cannot be
read in transit.
Remember, if you choose the secure server, all the information you enter
on the order formname, address, phone number, etc. is safely
Dont Want to Pay Online? You Can Pay Offline:There are two ways you can order from Amazon.com Books without having to enter your complete credit card number on the Web:
Where does Amazon.com Keep My Personal Information?To give you an additional layer of security, all credit card numbers are stored on a computer that is not connected to the Internet. After you type it in, fax it in, or call it in, your complete credit card number is transferred to this secure machine across a proprietary one-way interface. This computer is not accessible by network or modem, and the number is not stored anywhere else.
Amazon.com Books does not now sell or rent our list of customers to anyone. If you would like to make sure they never sell or rent information about you to third parties, just send a blank e-mail message to [email protected].
