Shopping and Shipping Frequently Asked Questions



Is it safe to order with my credit card on-line?

Ordering merchandise with your CREDIT CARD at Diecast Model Car Collectibles - www.motormint.com website is SAFE! We provide a fully secure purchasing environment by utilizing a technology called S.S.L. (Secure Socket Layering) to safeguard your credit card information when you order on-line. S.S.L. “encrypts” (scrambles) all your order information after you enter it, and before it leaves your computer and is sent to us. Once received by our “Secure Server” it is then “decrypted” into a format that we can use to process your order. Your credit card and personal information cannot be intercepted or reviewed by anyone except you and us at www.motormint.com.
