Thirty Thousand Swimmers Can't Be Wrong -- January 19, 2005
PHOENIX, Ariz. January 19. WHO says that ordering over the internet is not safe and secure? Just ask the 30,000 customers who have ordered products from SwimInfo.com. They will tell you that SwimInfo.com, through their partnership with Verisign, is one of the most secure retail sites on the internet. So much that PC Magazine voted SwimInfo.com Best Swim Site on the Internet.
Every SwimInfo.com transaction is secure. So secure that SwimInfo employees cannot see the credit numbers used by customers. This is because Verisign oversees this process, checks the credit card number, approves the transaction and replaces the credit number with a new transaction number.
“Most people who use credit cards do not realize that buying over the internet with Verisign is safer than giving your credit card to a restaurant waiter. When a waiter at a restaurant takes your credit card, he or she returns to the table for a signature, that credit card was approved over the internet through a dial up process. This is exactly the same process that is done when using a credit card over the internet,” commented Brent Rutemiller, CEO for Sports Publications International, publishers of Swimming World Magazine and SwimInfo.com. “In many cases your credit card is more secure over the internet because you did not give it to a restaurant employee who then leaves your site to process the card”, Rutemiller concluded.
“Every SwimInfo order is reviewed by SwimInfo’s Merchandising Department to look for incorrect or possible fraudulent information. This means that all orders are checked manually. If something appears unusual, then the customer is contacted. If we find duplicate orders, we either call the customer or cancel the duplicate order. We also look for incorrect addresses, misspelled information or any other abnormality. Most importantly, we never share or sell a person's e-mail address or other contact information,” Rutemiller added.
Approved orders are then sent to Mansfield, OH where the orders are pulled out of SwimInfo’s warehouse and then shipped the customer within five to seven days. Rush shipping is also offered.
Congratulations to SwimInfo.com for successfully processing order number 30,000!
