Customers are advised that once the cartcheckout is clicked, the Website will be redirected to the respective payment gateway pages which are powered by PayHere and Sampath Bank. The team requests customers to click “view cart” in order to finalize an order and proceed to checkout once the customer is ready to make the payment through their preferred mode of payment by their respective banks. Non Sampath Bank customers are also encouraged to speak to their respective card centres in order to enable the online payment facility ensuring a hassle free transaction process, as some debit cards by default do not have this facility activated. For all online transactions made by Sampath Bank Cards, fans will receive a One-Time Password (OTP) via SMS enabling a more secure transaction. Assurance for the transactions can be obtained through an acknowledgement receipt/invoice and through your respective credit or debit card financial institution. Fans are also requested to enable SMS notifications on their mobile phone in order to receive the OTP message. It is also advised to the customer to ensure and double check the order numbers are the same at an event if one receives an order cancellation message from the respective financial institution. The order duplication message may occur as a result of refreshing ones cart details.
The technical team further explained “Once you are in the payment page it is advised to refrain from refreshing or exiting the page. If you do so the order placed will be automatically cancelled. You will need to login one more time to your respective account and retrieve the already cancelled order or to re-order your favourite selections. In an event of you receiving a “payment failure” or “cancelled order” message it is advised to contact your respective bank and financial institution via their cards call centre in order to understand the prerequisites required in order for you to complete your purchase, which is not limited to 3DS authentication failure and card permission, which would determine and grant you a hassle free shopping experience”.
