Their payment systems are monitored and audited regularly by a world leading Qualified Security Assessors (QSA), so you can be confident Sagepay's services are completely secure.

Transactions processed using Sage Pay go through powerful fraud prevention tools to check if your card details have previously been compromised somewhere else online or to prevent the illegal use of a card by an unauthorised person.


We also provide an option to use your Paypal account to pay for your order at checkout, Paypal can also be used to process card payments whether you have a Paypal account set up or not, after selecting Paypal and you have been re directed to the Paypal login screen just select Check Out As Guest which will allow you to pay with your credit/debit card in the usual way.

3D Secure

We encourage all of our customers to enrol their payment card onto their bank's 3D Secure scheme. This means that when the card is used on our site, the transaction will be referred by SagePay to your bank, which will request a password from you to authorise the payment. Only you and your bank will know this password, making it a very secure method of protecting your account. 3D Secure can be thought of as "Chip & Pin" for websites. Visa's name for the system is "Verified by Visa". MasterCard's name for the system is "MasterCard SecureCode". We use both.

Fraud prevention

By using SagePay as our payment service provider, you can be certain that your card details will be safe but if they have been compromised elsewhere and then used by a fraudster on our site, you can be assured that we'll take steps to return your money to you. The SagePay system includes fraud prevention tools which allow us to identify potentially fraudulent transactions. If we suspect a transaction, we will cancel the order and return funds to the card, probably before you've noticed them leave you account in the first place. 

Secure connection

The Discount Equestrian checkout process uses SSL technology (secure sockets layer) to encrypt data transferred between your browser and our server. This means that no-one can eavesdrop in between and obtain your card details or personal information.

Website Security

We take online security very seriously and maintain our website security to very high standards.  We monitor our website daily for any vulnerabilities and have very secure firewall systems in place.  Our checkout and payment methods are all fully PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant.  We do not have access to any card details for online payments and do not retain or store any payment card details on our website.
