AbeBooks is a secure place to shop. We employ SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology to keep your credit card information safe, and use encryption to protect transmitted data. We will never pass your credit card number through e-mail.
For greater protection of your card, we ask that even when purchasing with your saved credit card numbers, you enter the last 4 digits of the number. This measure protects your card number if you forget to sign off from our site after making a purchase. To ensure that all of your personal information is kept safe, it is important for you to sign off once you are finished using the site, and close down the browser window if you are on a public or shared computer.
