The emergence of Covid-19 has impacted our lives in dramatic fashion. This pandemic has forced us to change the way we do things. Businesses have had to reorganise their operations to adapt to new conditions, hard lockdowns and unrelenting restrictions. All of a sudden, we were doing almost everything online. From work meetings, chatting with friends and family to shopping online.

As a result, shopping online has grown in leaps and bounds over this period. However, this form of shopping is littered with its own challenges like fraud and phishing. There are a lot of unscrupulous people out there who see this as an opportuntiy to defraud unsuspecting consumers of their hard earned money.

Here at Crowded Arena we would like to assure you that our business is above board and that it is absolutely safe to shop with us. Our website is secured and protected by HTTPS protocol. One of the main benefits of HTTPS is that it adds security and trust. It protects users against man-in-the-middle attacks that can be launched from compromised or insecure networks. Hackers can use such techniques to steal sensitive information. You can browse our website freely knowing that your information is safe and protected from hackers.

Our payments are processed by Payfast, South Africa’s trusted payment gateway. When you purchase a product from our website and are ready to pay, you will be redirected to a Payfast engine (website) where the payment process is concluded.

When you are on the Payfast platform, you can choose the payment method you prefer to conclude your order. Payfast offers a wide range of payment methods including credit & cheque cards, instant EFT, debit cards, RCS store cards (Makro, Game, Builders etc) and Snapscan among others.

We also offer you the opportunity to pay us directly through the Direct Bank Transfer option on our Checkout page. So you can see that transacting with us is super easy. As indicated earlier, our website and that of Payfast are protected by HTTPS protocol. As a payment gateway, Payfast is super protected to ensure that your payment information and cards are not compromised.

When making a purchase on our website, you will also be asked to confirm your address for delivery purposes. We offer 2 delivery methods, namely Free Delivery and Flat Rate. We offer the Free Delivery method for consumers who purchase Designer Alkaline Water products and are based in Centurion.
