Frequently asked questions about the Corel Store

Frequently Asked Questions: General Info

How can I pay?

We can accept the following cards for payment: Credit cards: Visa, MasterCard/Eurocard, JCBDebit Cards: Switch, Solo, Visa Delta and Visa Purchasing We do not currently accept American Express or Diners cards and it is not possible to accept Visa Electron cards online or for mail or telephone order transactions.

You will be asked for your card type, number and expiry data and your address (exactly as it appears on your card statement).

You will notice that we will also ask you for the additional three check digits printed on the signature strip on the back of your card: These do not appear on statements, point-of-sale receipts or carbon copies. This recently-introduced security measure provides both you and ourselves with added protection. You will find more and more online stores and other retailers asking for these digits over time.

When you press "Finish" we will verify your transaction through our banking partners - a process that takes just a few seconds. When your payment has been authorised, you will see an Order Confirmation page.


Why is VAT charged on my purchase when I have either a VAT registration number or a VAT exemption certificate?

The Corel Store quotes prices inclusive of VAT and charges VAT on all transactions with countries within the European Union. This is because Corel has been advised by its tax consultants not to accept VAT registration numbers or VAT exemption certificates on transactions conducted over the Internet since this VAT data cannot be validated in real time. Customers who do not wish to complete their transaction with the Corel Store for this reason may instead purchase Corel products from their local dealer.


How do I get a receipt for my Corel® Store order?

After placing your order, you should receive a "Corel Store Receipt" email that will contain information on order that includes the products purchased, quantities, price and any possible serial numbers or links for downloads. Your Corel Store Receipt will contain lots of helpful information including your order number, billing and shipping information, date shipping method, etc so please ensure you keep a record of it.


How much does shipping cost and how long will my order take to arrive?

The cost of shipping depends on the items ordered and the shipping method chosen. Likewise, the time it takes for your order to arrive depends on the shipping method chosen. For a breakdown of shipping rates and methods, please click here.

At Corel we recognize that our customers are concerned about the privacy of the information we collect and our plans for using this information.

Security Policy

The Corel® Store uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Protocol for browsers that support 128-bit encryption (such as Netscape Navigator® version 2.0 or greater, or Microsoft® Internet Explorer version 2.1 or greater). SSL encrypts information as it travels between the customer and Corel so that your purchase information cannot be read as it travels over the Internet.

If you are not using a browser which adheres to SSL Protocol and does not support 128 bit encryption, the information you provide may not be secure and we recommend that you contact Corel directly by phone to order products.

A change in the URL from http:// to https:// notifies you that you are using SSL. If the URL on a page asking you to provide personal information remains as http://, beware: this may result in an insecure transmission.

When processing credit card purchases over the Internet, Corel Customer Service will verify your credit card information with the appropriate financial institution prior to processing your purchase. Corel Customer Service will not supply this information to any third party.

Corel will only use your credit card information for the current transaction, and although this information will be saved by Corel, it will be encrypted to ensure that it is secure. We retain your encrypted credit card information for a period of time after the transaction for return/refund purposes and because your card is not charged until your order is shipped. We also retain your encrypted credit card information for a period of time so that we can use it as a safeguard to prevent unauthorised access to your online Smart Receipt. While this information is kept, you can rest assured that it is in a safe place, it is encrypted and that it cannot be seen by anyone within Corel or our partner companies. You'll know this because you will have to reenter your credit card information each time you make a purchase at the Corel Store.
