How does honestbee process payments?
Our checkout and payment processes are always done using a secure server connection. We use Transport Security Layer (TLS) with 128 bit encryption, the industry standard in secure server protection. Card data is never saved by us and is always transmitted securely to a PCI certified payment service provider to process the payment.
When you check out, your card is pre-authorised for the order amount and the funds are placed on hold with the bank. Your payment is deducted only after we’ve delivered your order. This allows us to adjust your final receipt for substitutes and out of stock items, as applicable.
After we have delivered your order, you’ll receive a final receipt email containing your:
- Order number
- Substitute or out of stock items
- Final order total
Pop-up stores (E.g. Mother’s Day store, CNY store, etc.) are an exception. We charge your card when the order is placed.
