What Payment Methods Do We Accept?
At Scintera, we accept all three major credit cards which include Visa, Mastercard and American Express. If you do not own a credit card and still wish to make a purchase with us, you can still do this via direct deposit or by sending us a cheque. To organize these special types of payment you will need to contact our orders department at or by calling us on +61 (02) 4367 4126. We will then instruct you on how you can go about making your purchase.
Can I Receive A Refund If I Change My Mind After Purchasing Online?
Unfortunately the only refunds we provide are for customers who receive their product in a damaged state. We simply can’t provide you with a refund just because you have changed your mind. If at any stage you are unsure about the product(s) you want to purchase please contact our orders department at From there they will provide you with any extra information you need and hopefully answer any question you may have.
How Come Your Website Does Not Detail The GST Component For Each Product?
There is a big variation of products on our website and different GST rules apply to these products. If you have any questions about GST for a product just contact our orders department at and they can take you through the GST component of any product you wish. The invoices on our website are too be used as a guide only for you current and past orders, and from a legal perspective we will ship out a hard copy purchase invoice with your product(s) purchased. This legal invoice will state any GST component that is present and we recommend that you hold on to this invoice if you require it for any tax purposes.
Is Purchasing Online At Scintera Safe?
If you have never purchased online you have nothing to fear. At Scintera it is our first priority to ensure the highest level of security during the payment process. On the payment page you will enter your credit card details and press the "Click To Purchase" button. Once you click this button your details are sent over a secure transmission line to ensure nobody is able to view your important details. At our payment page you will notice the website address starts with "http" and the extra "s" in the website address states that the payment page is a secure page.

Your credit card details are passed to a payment gateway who handle online transaction payments and this is all they do, so they do it well. As a business, Scintera does not store any credit card details in any way as we aware this is not a safe process. The payment gateway will communicate with the bank to check to see if you have the required funds for the transaction. Visit our security page for more details about our online security and payment provider.
