PAYMENT & VERIFICATION
Which payment methods do you accept?
As far as credit cards go, we accept Visa, MasterCard and Amex. Other payments include e-vouchers, credit notes and of course, Paypal. We do not accept money orders, bank cheques or payment in kind. We recommend linking your Paypal account to your bank account if you do not have a credit card.
I've had an email to say I need to verify my account. What does this mean?
We know that our customers work hard for their money and so to reduce the risk of online credit fraud, we may request additional information from you from time to time. It’s not personal and requests for ID are chosen by our system at random. To reduce the risk of online credit card fraud, Bardot may request additional information to process an online order. A small amount may be charged to your account for verification purposes, however the amount will be refunded as soon as the order has been successfully verified. Customers will be notified via email if further information is needed. Bardot reserves the right to cancel the order and process a refund if necessary.
We hope it gives you peace of mind that we respect your personal information as much as you do and stops thieves from spending your hard earned cash. If we aren’t satisfied with the verification offered, Bardot reserves the right to cancel the order and process a refund if necessary.
Any additional identification obtained will be destroyed once approval is granted.
Will I have to pay duties and taxes on orders outside of Australia?
In many countries around the world, you will have to pay import taxes on your goods. We would recommend contacting your local customs office for further details.
What currencies can I pay in?
All orders will be charged in AUD (Australian Dollar). The currency converter on our website is used as a guide only. Check with your bank for their most up to date exchange rates.
Can I change my order once it's been placed?
Is your site secure?
Indeed it is. Insecure is not a word we love so we've taken extra steps to ensure you feel comfortable and safe shopping with us online. For all nerd talk on this matter, visit our 'Security' page.
