Paying for an order

Payment methods

Credit card payment

Credit card payments are processed via our PCI DSS compliant payment service provider Worldline (more information below). Currently only Visa or Mastercard credit cards are accepted.

To place an order via credit card, select the option during checkout and follow the redirection to the secure Saferpay payment page by Worldline. After finalizing the transaction, the payment page redirects back to the web shop. Sensitive information entered on the payment page (e.g. credit card number, password, ...) are not forwarded or shared with the web shop.

Payment for orders of less than 300 items is currently possible by credit card only.

Wire transfer payment

Payment for orders of more than 300 items is currently possible by wire transfer only. It is not possible to pay by credit card.

Saferpay - payment page

During checkout customers are redirected to Saferpay, an online payment solution formerly provided by SIX Payment Services and now merged with Worldline SA. Worldline is a PCI DSS certified payment service provider. 

A payment service provider (PSP) is a company that integrates payment solutions into a web shop and processes payments of all kinds on behalf of its clients – whether they be credit or debit card payments or payments using an online payment process like PayPal. 

All payment related data is entered on a separate payment page hosted by the PSP directly and all communication between the customer, the card-issuing bank and additional financial service providers is carried out by the PSP. 

Neither the Vienna BioCenter Core Facilties (VBCF) nor the Vienna Drosophila Resource Center (VDRC) obtain, transmit or view payment data. We are informed about the successful or unsuccessful authorization of the payment by the PSP.
