Safe & Secure Shopping

Sagepay Card Payments

Sage Pay is Europe’s leading independent payment service provider (PSP) and is one of the most trusted. Over 50,000 businesses across Europe rely on Sage Pay to process card payments securely and help prevent fraudulent transactions. 

All Sage Pay's transactions are encrypted to top global security standards. Their payment systems are monitored and audited regularly by world leading Qualified Security Assessors (QSA), so you can be confident Sage Pay services are completely secure.

Transactions processed using Sage Pay go through powerful fraud prevention tools, to assess whether your card details have previously been compromised elsewhere online, as well as to prevent the illegal use of your card by an unauthorised person.

Pay with your Paypal account

We also provide an option to use your PayPal account to pay for your order at the Checkout page. Either use the Paypal Express checkout option from the cart page or use the Paypal option at the end of our usual checkout process.

PayPal can also be used to process card payments if you do not have a Paypal account. After selecting PayPal at Checkout, you will be redirected to the PayPal login screen – select “Check Out As Guest” to allow you to pay with your Credit/Debit Card.

3D Secure

We encourage all our customers to enrol their payment card onto their bank's 3D Secure scheme. This security scheme means that when used on our site, your card transaction will be referred by Sage Pay to your bank, who will request a password from you to authorise the payment. Only you and your bank will know this password, making it an extremely secure method of protecting your account.

3D Secure can be thought of as a "Chip & Pin" reader for websites.

Visa's title for the system is "Verified by Visa" and MasterCard's title for the system is "MasterCard SecureCode". Here at Discount Equestrian, we use both systems.

Fraud prevention

By using Sage Pay as our PSP, as a Discount Equestrian customer, you rest assured that your card details will be protected.

Sage Pay has the added security measure that if your card details have been compromised elsewhere but are then used fraudulently on our site, we will be alerted to this and will take steps to return your money to you.

The Sage Pay system includes fraud prevention tools that allow us to identify potentially fraudulent transactions. If we suspect a fraudulent transaction, we will cancel the order and return funds to your card immediately.

Secure connection

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

Website Security

We take online security extremely seriously and maintain our website security to the highest standards. We monitor our website daily for any vulnerabilities and have supremely 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 systems.
