Changes to way Scotlands People process payments

When I purchased some credits on Scotlands People this morning I noticed the payment screen had changed, in view of all the scams and hacking that is going on, especially at tis time of year I decided to check with them.

I sent them a message and this was their reply, so if you use Scotlands People do not worry when you see a new payment screen, as the e-mail below shows, they have changed the way they process payments, I have also posted this on the General Chat Board:-

Dear Mr *******

Thank you for your query.

We have made a change to the payment gateway we use on the ScotlandsPeople website. Transactions are now carried out using Datacash, the leading global payment processing service.

When a transaction is processed, you will receive an email from ScotlandsPeople to confirm your purchase.

Datacash does not send out a separate transaction email as our previous payment gateway did.

However, the transaction confirmation sent by ScotlandsPeople will contain details of purchase and the transaction reference number.

Kind Regards,

Team Leader
ScotlandsPeople Support Team
