The easiest and most convenient way to place an order is to use your credit card. All your
information is transferred to our server in a secure mode. If you order a handheld
dictionary no charges will be made to your account until we obtain a confirmation
of the order from you. We accept Visa, MasterCard/EuroCard and AmericanExpress cards.
We do accept checks or money orders denominated in U.S. dollars as payment for orders
on our site. However, all orders will be shipped only once the check has cleared.
These methods are available for U.S. only.
Non-U.S. customers may pay for an order by bank transfer. After your payment has posted
to our account, your order will be sent to you by UPS. A bank service fee must be paid if you choose this method of payment.
Upon receipt of your order, our sales staff will contact you (by phone or e-mail) to confirm the order. After confirmation of the order, we debit your account (wait for the arrival of the money order or until the check clears). Then your order will be sent to you by UPS.
Shopping at www.ectaco.com is safe. Our secure server software uses state-of-the-art commercial security measures.
All of your personal and financial information including
credit card number, name and address are protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
This protocol encrypts your information and converts it into bits of code that are securely
transmitted over the Internet. To provide additional security for the credit card transactions,
no charges will be made to your account until we obtain a confirmation of the order from you.
Your orders will be delivered to you by UPS courier service.
