    Online purchasing will never be entirely risk-free, secure or painless. Why? The internet was not designed for any three of those, that's why more than 15 years after its birth nothing really goes as smoothly as you hope, but it does work well.
    Not joking! And I doubt I could find my chequebook even if I wanted to. Also common is having call with card details, which is no good if I'm ordering after office hours (which I very often am).

    Shipping to cardholder address, I guess there is always a risk. As someone who lives in a flat, with a little mailbox outside, I get anything over letter size sent to my work, and carry home. If say Amazon will send to my work, and another shop won't, Amazon gets the business. I do much prefer to buy from an independent reseller, but not if it's a far worse buying experience.

    Payments will be processed by one of the following:

    ANZ Payment gateway (Amex, Visa, MC, Diners)
    Google Checkout
    Paypal
    Electronic Funds Transfer

    As for having to call with card details, that's simply not on. All online businesses should be using payment gateways.

    How reassuring, Andrew.
    Besides, somebody from Underbelly might evesdrop on the credit card details if given over the phone.

    Although most online shops ask for billing address, it seems that in Australia, that data isn't actually checked (yet).

    From my experience of implementing RBS's payment gateway internationally, individual shops can choose whether or not to perform the address check and if so, whether to process a transaction that doesn't match (with a risk flag), or whether to reject all transactions that don't match. I think it's similar with Paypal, not sure about ANZ.

    The reason that the check isn't mandatory is to cover the scenario such as when a corporate card could be registered to a company's head office, but orders need to be sent to satellite offices or personal addresses. It also allows for banks that have less advanced IT systems, who haven't implemented technology to perform the check or report back the result to the payment gateway.

    There's a separate risk check against shopper IP address to see that the order comes from the same country as the card issuer, which carries more weight during risk assessment. (e.g. an order coming from Nigeria with an Aussie credit card).

    Back on topic - Andrew, I'd be a willing customer once you're up and running. No special orders, but plenty of the standard bits and pieces

    So happy you're using paypal too. Will make ordering things a snap from over here.
    I'll be in the market for some 100' rolls and FB 8x10/11x14 soon. Here's hoping you're up and running when I am!
