ThePowerSite offer a number of different ways in which you can make a payment. Currently, all credit and debit card transactions are currently fulfilled by PayPal. This doesn't mean you need a PayPal account to make a purchase from one of our stores. PayPal will also take regular card payments through their system. For a breakdown of accepted payments, take a look at the information listed below:
Ways in which to pay
If you have a PayPal account, then you can log in, and pay directly with your PayPal account with funds linked from your bank account. Note. As a company policy, we limit the transaction amount we can accept via PayPal to £2000 inclusive of VAT. To make payments for items over this amount, we would require payment via BACS transfer.
Credit and Debit Cards
Normal credit and debit card payments are also available through our site*, but are again fulfilled by Sagepay. You can also process credit or debit card payments by using PayPal but you do NOT need to have a PayPal account to pay via this method. Note: As a company policy, we limit the transaction amount we can accept via PayPal to £2000 inclusive of VAT. To make payments for items over this amount, we would require payment via BACS transfer.

Amex (American Express)
American Express can now also be accepted, but only by using PayPal using the same method as above. All Amex payments are secured by PayPal and transactions using Amex cannot be done over the phone.
BACS Payments / Bank Transfer
Sending an internet banking transfer, commonly referred to as a BACS payment is a fast and safe way of transferring payments directly from your bank to ours. To make a payment using bank transfer, CLICK HERE for a copy of our bank account details.
Using PayPal to make a credit/debit card payment
Currently, we use PayPal to secure and make payments on our website. PayPal is a secure and trusted system, but often misleading as a lot of customers believe they have to already have a PayPal account set up to make a payment. If you have a PayPal account, then you can of course use this to make an online payment to ThePowerSite, however if you don't, then there is no need to panic. If you want to make a credit or debit card payment, when in the cart, simply click 'Checkout with PayPal' and you will be brought to PayPal's login off-site for payment.
Here, you will see a login option, asking you to choose which way to pay. The registered PayPal user account is always the default, but if you look underneath the customer login, there is an option to pay with a debit or credit card. Click that option, and you will be asked to fill in the details of your billing and shipping as with any other payment terminal.
*NB. ThePowerSite regrets it is not able to process debit, credit or purchase cards that are not registed with a UK bank.
