Secure Transaction

Payments on The Sausage Man website are taken through either Sage, PayPal or Google Pay secure portals – depending on your preference. We are in the process of introducing Apple Pay and Amazon Pay also, to allow even more choice and convenience for our customers.

The Sausage Man UK Ltd does not maintain records of your complete card information when you use our checkout, beyond that necessary to identify your account, as your complete details are handled securely by our third party providers. All credit card processing companies must comply with the data security standards set by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) in the UK. This means providers must stick to industry best practice so you can be assured that you’re in safe hands.


Sage uses a secure processing network, protecting cardholder data and monitoring quality, to ensure your transactions are handled safely and securely every time. Sage offers the most secure, compliant credit card processing solutions available. Complete with full PCI certification, merchant validation/certification, and PIN transaction security. When you are ready to make your purchase, you manually enter your card information using the Sage portal. Our point-of-sale (POS) then communicates with the card issuer (your bank or card association). This process also activates encrypted security measures, ensuring there’s no suspicious card activity taking place, for our mutual protection. Through Sage we are able to accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Diners Club, JCB, Debit/ATM, and other private-label cards.

PayPal allows you to pay using your own PayPal account, or with your credit/debit card as a guest checkout. With a PayPal account you are offered a number of extra protections on eligible purchases to ensure peace of mind when placing your order. If your eligible purchase doesn’t arrive, or doesn’t match the description, PayPal can reimburse you. PayPal monitors every transaction 24/7 to prevent fraud, email phishing and identity theft. Every transaction is encrypted using PayPal’s advanced encryption technology.

PayPal’s Buyer Protection programme entitles you to reimbursement for the full purchase price of the item plus the original shipping costs you paid, if any, when you don’t receive your item, or when you receive an item, but the item isn’t what you ordered. Buyer Protection covers all eligible purchases where PayPal is used, as well as payments made through their website. To take advantage of Buyer Protection, PayPal requires, among other things, that PayPal accounts be kept in good standing and ask that a dispute be filed within 180 days of your purchase or payment, Terms and Conditions apply.

You’re not liable for unauthorised purchases made from your account. If an order doesn’t arrive or match the description, PayPal will reimburse the full cost of eligible purchases and paid delivery costs (where applicable). Your memory protects your login information and lets you pay without exposing your card details. If you forget your login, you can use your privacy questions to get you back into your account. But if you forget these, contact PayPal and they will give you a hand.

Google Pay

When you tap to pay, Google Pay sends us a virtual account number instead of your actual card number – so your payment info stays secure. Your Google Pay information is protected by the security you have put in place for it on your device. It can be secured with PIN, pattern or biometrics. Payment methods are saved on your Google Account and stored safely on Google’s private servers. Encryption is used when you make a payment to protect your data in transit.
