How secure is the credit card information I enter online?
Your credit card information is handled with PayPal, an eBay company and the authorized payment processor for Biz4Kids.

PayPal takes every precaution to ensure that your information, your transactions, and your funds are protected by our fraud protection policies, site encryption technology, and even account insurance.

PayPal collects only the minimum amount of information that is needed to protect PayPal customers and vendors against fraud. Your personal information is kept confidential.

Your credit card transaction will appear on your bill as: "PAYPAL*Biz4Kids"
We have chosen PayPal for all of our online transactions due to the rising cost of merchant accounts for credit card processing. PayPal is a service that allows businesses and individuals to accept all major credit cards and eChecks for online purchases via a secure server. Paypal is one of the most secure ways to conduct business on the Internet. Setting up an account through PayPal and sending a payment is quick and easy.

About PayPal: PayPal lets any business or consumer (with an email address) securely, conveniently, and cost-effectively send and receive payments online. PayPal's network builds on the existing financial infrastructure of bank accounts and credit cards to create a global, real-time payment solution. They deliver a product ideally suited for small businesses, online merchants, individuals and others currently under served by traditional payment mechanisms.

PayPal offers their service to users in 38 countries including the United States. They have over 20 million registered users, including more than 3 million business accounts. Their account base is growing by an average of 28,000 accounts per day, with virtually no traditional sales or marketing.

The size of PayPal's network and widening acceptance of their product has helped them become the leading payment network for online auction web sites, including eBay. PayPal is increasingly used at other e-commerce sites, for the sale of goods such as electronics and household items, the sale of services such as web design and travel, and the sale of digital content. Offline businesses, including lawyers, contractors and physicians, have increasingly begun to receive payments online through PayPal. PayPal's service, which lets users send payments for free, can be used from PCs or web-enabled mobile phones.

PayPal was recently acquired by eBay, and is located in Mountain View, California. PayPal is the 2002 SIIA Codie Awards winner for "Best eCommerce Solution" and is recognized by PC Magazine as one of "The Top 100 Web Sites."
