To locate the product you need, browse our catalog or search for the items using Search Wizard. All search functions are safe. We worked on our content to make sure it is well presented, informative, and easy to search. Keyword search forms are located on top of every e-store page.Adding Items to Your Shopping Cart
For every catalogue item, there is an "Order Now" button on this item's product information page. This button adds the item to your shopping cart. You can put as many items as you want in your shopping cart. Putting something in your shopping cart does not commit you to buying it. After you put something in your cart, you can choose to place the order immediately and use the cart top navigation bar or continue shopping via "Continue Shopping" link to keep searching or browsing until your cart contains all the items you want to order. You can access the contents of your Shopping Cart at any time by clicking the Shopping Cart icon at the top of every page of our Web site.Software-related issues
Software registration: buying software is different from buying electronic dictionaries because with software some products will be simply downloaded from our site through special secure system, in which case you will be given activation keys, and will have to register your copy to be able to use it.
The checkout area is secure. This is where you actually purchase the items you had put into your Shopping Cart. The Billing & Shipping Information page and all checkout pages thereafter are set in a secure mode.
Placing an order at ectaco.co.uk is easy. There is no need to create an account before you are ready to place your first order online. You can easily place and monitor all your orders by creating an account, which will let you view the detailed order history. As an online store, we use advanced electronic commerce solutions, to keep your online shopping experiences safe and enjoyable. We use THAWTE system providing SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) for secure online transactions and VeriSign, for security and payment services.
If you are a new customer, enter your e-mail address and password, confirm the password, and then click the "Submit" button. (Keep in mind that the e-mail address you provide here will be the only e-mail address to which we will be able to send information on your subsequent orders.)
You need an account to view your order status and history, to get registration keys and to download full versions of purchased software, to subscribe or unsubscribe to our news and press-releases. If you forgot your password and would like to retrieve it, we can help you get it by e-mail. All you need to do is follow this link.Your Account and Mail Preferences
When you establish your Ectaco account, your account will automatically indicate that you want to receive news on our product releases, services and events. In addition, it will automatically indicate that you would like to be notified of our special offers and product promotions. If you do not wish to receive these materials, please choose appropriate options. To change your notification preference, simply uncheck the box next to the line that says "Send me ectaco.co.uk news".Shipping Address
It can be same as your billing address or an alternate address where you want your items delivered. Note that you must fill out all required fields on your order form. If you wish to have your order shipped to an address other than your billing address, the shipping address must be verified. Our sales representatives will contact you and confirm the time and address for your order delivery. Please note that Ectaco orders have no signature release and therefore can't be left at the address without an authorized person signing for merchandise receipt. For fraud prevention it helps to inform the credit card issuer (phone numbers located on the back of your card or on your monthly statement) that you would like to add an authorized alternative shipping address to your account. The information will remain on their file for your future orders.Changing your Account Details
If you are a registered user, and your e-mail/address has changed, here's how to update your information. Click on "Your account" at the top of our Home page. Sign in if you haven't already done so. Scroll to the bottom of the page and select "Account settings". On "Account Settings" page, select the appropriate link (name, address or e-mail) and make the necessary changes. Click "Update profile". For security reasons, you will be asked for your password before you can change any information.Billing Address
We must have your correct billing address to verify it with your card company. This is the address where they send your monthly statement. If any information you provide is incorrect, it will delay your order and additional processing charges may apply. We will contact you via email if there are any problems. Please understand that this is a credit card processing regulation, designed to insure online security and required by all credit card issuers. Please indicate your billing address in this form. Note that you must fill in all of the required fields. We require correct billing address information for credit card verification only. No mail will ever be sent to the billing address. T he billing address protects your credit card from fraudulent use.Select a Shipping Method
Shipping method will depend on how quickly you need your merchandise delivered to you. We will estimate shipment and delivery dates for you on the order form and in the order confirmation e-mail which you will receive after placing your order.Select a Payment Method
The easiest and most convenient way to pay is by credit or debit card. All your credit/debit card information is securely transferred to our server. We accept American Express, MasterCard/EuroCard, Discover and Visa. If you're paying with a credit/debit card, enter the card number without spaces or dashes. If you order a handheld dictionary, no charges will be made to your account until we obtain order confirmation from you. If you're buying downloadable software, we'll debit your account and provide you with the registration key for the software download. If you prefer a payment method other than credit card, you can check a Call salesman option when you fill in the order form, and Ectaco sales executive will contact you to discuss an alternative way of payment. All orders must be prepaid. After we receive funds, your order will be shipped to you (or, for software purchases, a registration key for software download will be sent by e-mail).Review your Order
When you have entered all the necessary information, click "Here" button at the bottom of page. You order summary will be displayed and the order will be confirmed by an e-mail message to the address you've specified.
