Our automated internet shop has a built in secure payment and ordering system using AddToCart buttons beside each item with absolutely secure payment using PayPal. You DO NOT need to sign up as a member of PayPal.

We have found PayPal to be an excellent system both for us and the customer. However we can also accept payment OnLine by Credit and Debit Card - you will be offered this option once you have added items to the YourCart. If you would like to Pay by Cheque then please order by email or by post and we will invoice you.

Pay Pal: Purchasing using AddtoCart buttons
Clicking on an AddToCart button DOES NOT immediately purchase any item - the item is added to your own Shop Cart which you can access by clicking on any YourCart button. You can easily add and delete items from the Cart and the purchase price for each item will be shown.

When you are happy with your proposed purchases you then click the SecureCheckout button on the page accessed by the YourCart button. Payment is through the internationally recognised PayPal stystem - you DO NOT need to join PayPal in order to make a secure payment - you can use any widely accepted payment card - Visa, Master Card, Debit Card, Maestro, American Express etc. Postage and Packing charges are added before you proceed to complete the purchase.

We have redesigned the HOME page using Bootstrap technology that works preferentially for the smaller formats. We have tested out the website on a range of popular browsers on both Mac and PC. Links to SPRINGTHYME will take you to our older website where some pages are better suited to the larger formats.

Music Software
We have Sound Cloud music files on many CD pages and for this you may need to register with Sound Cloud. Browsers require suitable Plug-Ins to play mp3 music files. These usually come as part of a browser installation but you can obtain free updates from e.g. Quicktime.

Currency Converter
If you would like to know the approximate value of your order in your local currency then use the DropDown Menu beside each priced item or use the International Currency Converter to calculate the cost of your order in your own currency -- Dollars, Yen, Marks, Francs etc. etc. Just click on the logo. Your Card will be debited at the current conversion rates as determined by PayPal when you place your order.
