Payment Information

Credit card payments:

ORMS Direct accepts payments from Mastercard and Visa credit cards only. We, unfortunately, do not accept American Express (Amex) or Diners.

When paying online through the Thwarte Secured Payment Gateway (VCS), you may select straight or use your budget facility.

At the time paying for the order, the transaction details are presented to the bank and an authorization is obtained for the amount of the order. As a protection against fraud, Orms reserves the right to request ID documents, credit card billing statements and photocopies of any credit card used to make purchases on Orms. Orms reserves the right to refuse to ship orders to customers refusing to make such information available or whose information is suspicious in any way.

ORMS Direct also uses a 3D Secure system for credit card transactions to keep you the consumer protected against online fraud and information theft.

3D Secure Information:

What is 3D-Secure? Simply, 3D-Secure is a unique service offered by MasterCard and Visa International that uses a One Time Pin (OTP) to protect a cardholder against unauthorised use of their card. Once activated, your card number cannot be used for online purchases at participating merchants without your One Time PIN (OTP). The OTP is sent to your cellphone during payment as the final step to complete the transaction.
