We have partnered with Paypal to protect your personal information and credit or debit card details. Security is our highest priority.

We are level 1 PCI compliant and use 128-bit SSL encryption to ensure credit card data is safe and secure.
 
When you enter your card details, you are using Paypal’s secure server, which ensures your information is secure. Data storage on Paypal and the communication between The Kitchen Bookstore, Paypal and the worldwide banking networks is regularly audited by the banks themselves. Paypal employs sophisticated firewall technology and other security best practices to ensure only legitimate access is allowed.
 
All transactions are processed via Paypal in Philippine Pesos, either through your Paypal account, or on your credit card through Paypal.
