Paypal is a popular and worldwide alternative to credit cards, and should be familiar to most customers through eBay, where Paypal is often the preferred payment method. Paypal offers customers a high level of security, buyer protection programs (may vary by country) and the possibility to send instant payments. Paypal also offers a litigation service for situations where buyer and seller should not be able to sort purchase related disagreements. The Black Angel is a Paypal Verified merchant, which means Paypal has verified and validated our companies trustworthiness and confirmed us as an authentic and reliable merchant.
IBAN and BIC are the international standard for money transfers from bank account to bank account, and have replaced the former SWIFT payment in 2002. All relevant account information are contained within the IBAN (International Bank Account Number) and BIC (Bank Identifier Code). These two numbers suffice to complete your payment through your e-banking (if IBAN is supported), or by having the money wired by your local bank branch (ALL banks worldwide are able to make they payment with these numbers). Payments with IBAN and BIC take 4-5 days to arrive after payment is made. It is the least used payment method, as it offers no buyer protection program, contrary to credit cards or Paypal, but it is an alternative for customers who don’t have a credit card or Paypal account.
