Worldpay is one of the world’s leading online payment processing companies, it provides a very high level of card security for the cardholders and the merchant.

Worldpay handles 26 millions transactions per day for some of the largest and most highly respected online retailers in the world.

When you place your order on the Compact Instruments website, you will be redirected to a Secure Worldpay payment page to enter  your card details, depending on your card type you will be asked to complete the 3d Secure authentication, an additional fraud prevention scheme that allows extra security on transactions that are processed online, now your payment will be processed by Worldpay and the card information provided corresponds with your credit card provider.

Visa and Mastercard now offer a greater security feature when buying online with Verified by Visa or Mastercard Secure Code, If you haven’t done so already, you will be able to register your card with a password, any future purchases online will then require this password.
