Facts and FAQs

Paypal Accounts

UV-Buddy.com uses Paypal as its payment gateway because it is one of the largest and most trusted systems on the internet, and is used by sites such as eBay.

Contrary to popular belief, you do not actually have to have a Paypal account in order to use it as a payment gateway.

After you have checked out from our store you will be transferred to Paypal. The Paypal screen is divided in half down the middle. On the left hand side is a summary panel of the items you have chosen to purchase. On the right-hand side you will be prompted to log-in to your Paypal account. You will notice below this that there is a link entitled "Don't have a Paypal account?". You should select this option if you do not have an account. Upon doing so, the screen will change to a conventional payment form where you can provide any Debit or Credit card information, in much the same way you would at other online retailers.

Thank you for your purchase.
