128-Bit SSL Site Security
As soon as you access the 'checkout' or 'login' pages, your Internet
browser will go into secure mode (i.e. before you enter any personal or
payment details). You can tell whether a page is secure as 'https' will
replace the 'http' at the front of the www.electronicsforless.ca in
your browser address window. Your internet browser (IE6 or IE7, Firefox, Chrome or Safari) will only allow you to visit 100% secure pages. Our secure site is secured by Comodo, an industry leader in web site security.
Our secure mode uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
technology to provide encryption of personal information such as your
name, address and credit card details. In this way, information passed
between your computer and us cannot be read in the unlikely event of
someone intercepting it.
The encryption process
creates billions of code combinations to protect each transaction made
on our site, so your card details cannot be viewed by anyone else using
the Internet. If you are using one of the more recent browser versions,
our site supports 128 bit encryption and therefore keeps your details
as safe as possible at all times. If you have an earlier version of
Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Netscape Navigator, we suggest
that you download a free upgrade from the relevant sites.
Your Details Are Secure!
No credit card numbers are ever stored on our servers so there is no way for your private financial information to be compromised. In addition, our servers are 100% secured as they are tested three times daily for security vulnerabilities. We have been selling online for six years and have never had a security problem.
Credit Card Fraud Protection
While we know that 99.99% of our sales are perfectly legitimate, we do filter many of the credit card
transactions through banking institutions before completing the sale process for our protection. The
following is the most common list of criteria used by our accounts
department to flag suspect orders.
- Unverifiable Billing address used in the order.
- When the billing address does not match that of the Credit Card.
- This also applies to PayPal non-verified addresses.
- Unverifiable Shipping address used in the order.
- Shipping address is irregular, a post box or a temporary location (e.g. a trade show)
- Untraceable email address used in the order.
Often one of the free email services, like hotmail.com and yahoo.com,
gmail.com which are relatively untraceable.
- Overly Expensive items are ordered that make no sense.
people order expensive items from electronicsforless.ca, but there are
some things that cause us to flag an order. For example, its simply not
cost effective to order a 55-Inch plasma to be delivered to an American
- Multiple items are ordered.
- Especially where the items have a high resale value.
- Express shipping is demanded.
- Most fraudulent orders specify overnight or 1-day shipping without hesitation or prior correspondence.
- Shipping address differs from billing address.
Receiving point and billing address are different in most fraud orders
so we always need to make the connection with the Payee and preferably
- Suspicious billing address is used in the order.
- Rare, but the truth is we've had some pretty badly made up addresses.
- Leave at door.
If the courier service cannot guarantee delivery of goods, the risk of
fraud is very high so we require signed verification on all orders
unless specific arrangements have been made between us and the customer.
- GeoLocation does not match the user's IP address or NO IP address.
the user's computer is not located in the same geographical location of
the credit card billing address. e.g. A credit card that is issued to
an address in Vancouver is entered from a computer that is located in
- IP address is the digital signature of your computer. Your IP address is 184.108.40.206
- The absence of an IP address indicates suspicious activity items will not be shipped.
If you suspect that your order may have been or will
be flagged because of one of the above reasons, please let us know.
