We use Sage Pay (formerly Protx) to securely process payments on our website. When paying for your goods online, credit / debit card information is sent encrypted by secure server.

Here's how the Sage Pay system works:

Four quick steps for secure payments

  1. You visit the Achilles Heel site and add products to your basket
  2. You enter your contact, delivery and card details
  3. Sage Pay checks with your bank to make sure everything is okay (including some security checks for Visa and Mastercard)
  4. Sage Pay lets us know if everything is okay and we conclude the transaction as appropriate

The response from your bank

Sage Pay contacts your bank to make sure the details you provided are accurate and you have the appropriate funds in your account to cover the cost of the order. The bank will respond and if no problems were found we conclude your order and send out a confirmation email. If any problems occur, we will inform you and give you options on how to complete your order.

Additional security checks

Depending on your credit or debit card type, the bank may make additional security checks. If you fail to complete these security checks your order may not complete successfully.

Visa and Mastercard details will be scrutinised by Verified by Visa and MasterCard Secure Code checks. You will need to create a new password during the process for these checks if you have not already done so.

If everything is okay with your transaction we will issue you with a confirmation email (you will also receive an email from Sage Pay). This will contain your order number, the content of your order and details about how to track the progress of your order if necessary.
