I was planning to do my first order to the well known Walloth & Nesch on internet. I found the things I needed and went to do the order and payment....

But, big surprise!!!! I was supposed to fill in a downloaded order form (in MS Word) together with ALL my credit card data and send it by fax or email to Walloth & Nesch.

Ooops! I will never do that!

I can't really think that a well known BMW oldtimer supplier using that kind of methods for payment.

I will not expose ALL my credit cards details to be shown in a fax or Email. Mail servers often vulnerable to hacking (and I guess this mailserver could be a goldmine).

Normally electronic handshaking between supplier and my bank needed to do the transmission.

Perhaps I'm to hypersensitive, but....

How do you a safe payment when you order from Walloth & Nesch?

I have always just handwritten the info on their price quote and faxed it back. It has never been a problem. You could telephone them directly and verbally give them the information.

W&N does have an archaic payment system. Their system has not changed since I made my first purchase with them back in 2002. Just made a sizeable order from them using the credit card payment via email. Guess I'll fax the order in next time.

Bank transfer

I asked W&N about payment by Bank transfer and that was no problem. (thanks dequincy)

I went for that and it worked out very easy, quickly and safe!

So ask for bank transfer when ordering from W&N next time, and you could sleep peaceful during the nights.... :)

At my bank an international bank wire transfers costs $50. From Sweden to Germany could be less, but unless one is ordering a lot of stuff its a high price to pay.

I just ordered by downloading the form, filling it on computer and then email it back with CC info, if you use AMEX then no worries. they processed the order and on DHL by next day!! fantastic

Look into Xoom.com for $5 wire transfer fees. I've sued a few times for sellers without Paypal. For Walloth, I just email them my credit card. I use Amex since Visa gets their undies in a twist with most international orders, even if I forewarn them.
