1. How do I buy online from the web site www.studia-phaenomenologica.com?
The Romanian Society for Phenomenology sells its products using the on-line payment services of www.epayment.ro. Thus, we can provide our customers a safe and efficient order and payment service.
You can order our products following these 3 steps:
a. Select the product you want and press the "Buy Now" link.
b. Insert your personal information.
This information is necessary for the correct and efficient processing of your order. Inserting the personal data is done through a 129 Bits SSL connection. For more information please read the "How safe is it for me to pay on-line?" section. Your personal information is not sent to other people, by the Company, nor ePayment. Please see that you correctly complete the form and indicate the person to which the billing and shipping will be made. The e-mail address is very important because the order and product information will be sent by e-mail. A wrong e-mail address will slow the processing of the order. Further more, the Company and ePayment will not be able to contact and inform you about the order status.
If the shipping address is different from the billing address, please indicate so by selecting the menu at the end of the form. Choose the desired payment method and confirm the information by pressing "Next Step".
c. Insert the credit/debit card information.
If you chose the Credit/Debit Card payment method, it is necessary to fill in the information about your CC. For payments made with Visa and MasterCard (Visa/Visa Electron and MasterCard/Maestro) Credit/Debit Cards, it is used the "3-D Secure" system, developed by the organizations above to ensure a security standard for the on-line transactions, the same with the ones done at the ATMs or in a merchant's shop. "3-D Secure" ensures that no information regarding your card is transferred or kept, at any time, on our servers on the ePayment servers: the information is sent to the Visa and MasterCard systems. Further more, "3-D Secure" is an on-line system used to establish the identity of the card owner. The authentication process of the owner is made based on the security code, known only by the card owner, and it takes place only on the Visa or MasterCard server, according to the situation. The "3-D Secure" system allows on-line transactions made with any card issued under Visa and MasterCard license, including the debit cards and the electronic cards (Maestro and Visa Electron). The virtual cards issued by these organizations are also accepted.
If the card transaction was successful, the next screen will thank you for the order placed on our web site and will give you useful information about the order. This information will also be sent by e-mail.
