Credit & Debit Cards

We accept American Express, Visa, MasterCard & Discover.

Your credit card is pre-authorized when the order is placed and charged at the time your order ships.  We do not store your credit card information. We use Authorize.net for our merchant services.  They validate your credit card information and return an authorization code and the last 4 digits of your credit card to us - we never see your credit card information. You can click on the Authorize.net seal at any time to verify our relationship with Authorize.net.

Our website is protected with SSL (secure socket layer) encryption, the highest standard in Internet security. You can click on the Volusion SSL logo on our pages at any time to verify our SSL status.

Most banks outside of North America do not support cardholder address verification (AVS), so we cannot accept credit card payment for orders placed from outside of the USA (excluding US territories and military APO/FPO). All non-US credit card payments must be made using PayPal.

Please Note: If you attempt to place an order using billing information that does not match the cardholder information on file with your bank and the pre-authorization fails due to an address verification system (AVS) failure, it is possible that your bank will place a temporary hold on funds even though the transaction does not go through. This includes gift cards having a Visa/MasterCard logo that do not allow registration of a cardholder address. Unfortunately we have no control over this. The temporary hold will be released by your bank in the timeframe specified in your cardholder agreement. To prevent this, please be sure that the billing information provided during checkout is an exact match (name and complete address) to the card information on file with your bank.

PayPal

We also accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, electronic checks, and payments from PayPal available funds through PayPal using payment address payments@themagickalcat.com.  If you are making any type of PayPal payment, please select "PayPal Express" as your payment option at checkout.  If paying by PayPal, you will be taken to PayPal to enter your payment information and then returned to our checkout page to complete and submit your order. 

Money Orders / Cashier's Checks

If you prefer to pay for your order offline, we accept money orders and cashier's checks by mail.  Payments must be in US dollars made out to "The Magickal Cat LLC".  To pay using an offline payment method, place your order on the website then mail your money order or cashier's check to:

The Magickal Cat LLC.
430 Franklin Village Drive # 186
Franklin, MA 02038-4007

Be sure to include your order number with your payment.  Please note that your order will not be shipped until your money order or cashier's check is received and processed. Due to issues with fraudulent payments, orders paid by money order or cashier's check may be held for up to 15 business days after the payment is deposited to ensure that the payment clears.  If your payment is not received within 2 weeks of the date the order is placed, the order will be canceled from our system unprocessed.

Cash

We will accept cash, but we strongly advise against sending cash by mail. If you choose to send cash, you do so at your own risk -- we will not be responsible if unscrupulous postal workers pocket your payment. Cash sent by mail must be concealed so that you cannot tell it is cash by looking at or touching the envelope (coins are usually a dead giveaway and should be taped to an index card or small piece of cardboard, all cash should be wrapped in heavy paper -- magazine paper works well - to prevent it from being visible).

Cash payments will be accepted in U.S. currency only. As with all mailed payments, be sure to include your name and the order number (or a printed copy of your order) so that we can match up the payment with the order.

Personal Checks (Not Accepted)

Effective September 1, 2007, we no longer accept personal checks.  After years of accepting personal checks without a problem, we experienced a sharp increase in the number of bad checks sent in as order payment during 2007.   Our choice was either to raise prices to cover our bank fees and recovery costs or stop accepting personal checks. 

If we receive payment by personal check through the mail, we will destroy the check and cancel the order.

If you wish to pay by check, please consider using a PayPal electronic check. 

 

Orders Shipping Outside of the USA (except for APO/FPO Addresses)
 
All international payments must be made via PayPal or international money order/cashier's check.  All payments must be in U.S. dollars. 

Please Note: Most banks outside of North America do not support cardholder address verification (AVS), so we cannot accept debit or credit card payment for orders placed from outside of the USA (excluding US territories and military APO/FPO). All non-US debit and credit card payments must be made using PayPal.

If you attempt to place an order using billing information that does not match the cardholder information on file with your bank or for a bank that does not support address verification and the pre-authorization fails due to an address verification system (AVS) failure, it is possible that your bank will place a temporary hold on funds even though the transaction does not go through. Unfortunately we have no control over this. The temporary hold will be released by your bank in the timeframe specified in your cardholder agreement.
