At Hammocks Australia one of the payment methods we offer through our website is PayPal. If you are not familiar with this payment method we will outline how it works and the benefits of purchasing via PayPal.

Firstly it is important to note that you are not required to have a PayPal account to make a payment through PayPal and you are not required to create an account either. You are always given the option pay via credit card without the need for an account.

PayPal also does not cost you anything and it is free to register an account with them.

PayPal Payments 

PayPal in its simplest form allows Hammocks Australia to receive your credit card payment securely through our website.  PayPal processes this payment and your credit card details are never exposed to us or anyone else. PayPal provide 100% protection from unauthorized payments, and monitor payments 24/7.

Security; from the PayPal website

“PayPal was built to keep you secure. As a pioneer in online payments, we set the standard for fraud prevention by continuously developing and deploying a broad range of security measures so you can focus on your customers.

Fraud prevention measures.

PayPal's industry-leading loss rate is less than 0.5%. We keep sellers secure with:

  • Data encryption
  • Antifraud risk models
  • Address Verification System (AVS)
  • Card Security Code (CSC)
  • Verification
  • Antifraud specialists”


As well as the security factor, PayPal also provide a Resolution Centre for any disputes you may have with a vendor. Online sellers can’t sell you something dodgy then just disappear anymore! You can purchase with confidence knowing that should you ever have any problems there is a process in place to help you out. We recommend In the first instance of a problem that the first contact should be with your original vendor to sort out any issues. 

If you do decide to create an account with PayPal, this also offers a few more benefits. With you details securely saved in their system, you can then make purchases online with vendors that accept PayPal such as Hammocks Australia without needing to re-enter all your credit card and address details each time.

You can also send and receive money instantly anywhere in the world with someone that also has a PayPal account. Great for safely sending money overseas to friends and family. Money in your account can be linked to a bank account, so these funds can then be transferred directly to your bank.

We have been using PayPal for nearly 5 years, and have never had any problems, or cause for concern. We definitely recommend and rely upon PayPal and the services and facilities they provide.

Should you still not be sure about using credit cards online, no problem we do also offer the option to pay via bank deposit/EFT or cheque. These options and details can be found during the checkout process.

Wishing you a safe and enjoyable online shopping experience from the Team @ Hammocks Australia.
