 Our payment services are provided by WORLDPAY AND PayPal for car parts. When you enter your payment details on our website you are actually providing them direct to WORLD PAY/PayPal and BCP AUTOMOTIVE  never has access to your card number. This ensures the highest level of payment security for you. All online BCP  transactions involving card payments are protected for your security using SSL encryption. This means that the information you enter into your browser is scrambled before being sent over the internet and it will be useless to anyone intercepting it. You can check that you are shopping in a secure environment by looking for the padlock icon in your internet browser. In addition, website pages protected using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption always begin with "https" rather than "http". Check this in the address bar near the top of your screen.
