Please note, when any order is cancelled, this is irreversible orders will have to be placed again.
15. We may need to contact customers whose billing address is different to their delivery address to authenticate the validity of the card holder. This is purely for security reasons to protect both our customers and ourselves from card fraud. If either the billing or delivery address on any order placed is a PO box, then the order will automatically be deleted for obvious security reasons. If a non 3D secure payment is made combined with other failed authorisation checks, the Sagepay payment will be aborted leaving the only payment options as BACS/bank transfer. If this payment is not received within 5 working days, this order will be deleted from the system.
