That is done through the 3rd party web site Paypal which we use.
Why do you use PayPal? We specialize in surfboards not credit card processing so we went with a site that is number #1 in credit card processing and credit card security.

We want your credit card safe and it safest in one place with tons of security, and thats Paypal.
