After your order is processed, your payment details are not stored in any form. Transactions are completed in Australian Dollars ($AUD). All prices listed on the The Bead Shop website do not include GST.

This website contains secure areas as indicated by a padlock symbol in the browser and a https:// web address. The Bead Shop uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) for transmitting private payment information via the Internet. SSL uses a private key to encrypt data that is transferred over the connection. This protocol is a standard used by many web sites when you submit confidential information, such as credit card numbers and other personal data. SSL creates a secure connection between your browser and our server. If you have any concerns or enquiries about your security while using our website, please contact us for more information.
