Site Security

Protection For You

We recognise that you may well have concerns about security on the internet. Our site uses a secure server that implements secure sockets layer (SSL) technology in our on-line ordering and payment process to protect your payment card information.

This site has a certificate issued by the independent and globally accepted certification authority Comodo. This certificate indicates that you can conduct secure online transactions with us with confidence. The browser's "LOCK" icon is activated and the secure mode enables the highest level of encryption and ensures that confidential information and transactions cannot be viewed, intercepted or altered. Please hover over the Comodo logo on the left to check our certificate.


The actual payment stage where you enter your card details is managed externally to our site by the WorldPay secure payment processing system so at no time do we have any access to your card information, it is encrypted and hidden from our view by the WorldPay systems.

Order and Pay securely with confidence

When you have finished selecting the products you wish to purchase you may proceed to place your order by clicking on the 'checkout' button. If you choose to pay by credit card online, as soon as you click on 'Confirm order' you will be connected to the WorldPay system and your browser will go into secure mode, you will see the padlock icon appear on your screen and the url address prefix change to https: to identify that the site is in secure, encrypted mode. The site then stays in this mode until your order process is completed. You can verify the identity and status of the site by clicking on the padlock icon on your screen.

Data relating to your identity and your payment card details will be securely transmitted from your screen to the WorldPay secure server in a 128-bit encrypted format. WorldPay will then verify your details with your bank/credit card company and attempt to process the transaction. If there are any errors, for example if you enter a wrong number, or your address doesn't match the card, you will be given the opportunity to resubmit or use another card. If the transaction is successful you will receive an order confirmation from us to your email address.

In addition DIY HOMEFIT LTD is enrolled in Trustwave's Trusted Commerce™ program to validate compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) mandated by all the major credit card associations. This program confirms that we are taking steps to secure credit card information and includes quarterly testing of the website to ensure there are no major security vulnerabilities which could compromise a customer's credit or debit card information.


Our systems only see and store your shopping cart and your login details - which you can also see under My Account when you are logged in.

  • Credit card over the phone/fax
  • Electronic Funds Transfer (or EFT) direct from your bank to ours
