DubaiFilter.com does not support
cash on delivery for various reasons. At DubaiFilter.com, our priority is
selling great products and providing the best customer experience. Being
cashless helps us ensure smoother and faster deliveries which means lower prices
for our customers. Cash also cannot provide the full customer protection
services that you get from your bank and card provider.
We also have an
excellent returns policy so that you can return an item if the need arises. Should
you wish to use cash, you can obtain a prepaid internet shopping card at
various banks, supermarkets and petrol stations around the United Arab
When someone attempts
a payment, our payment processor sends a request to your issuing bank for
either a $0 or a $1 authorization (depending on what is permitted by your bank)
which is simply used to verify that the card is issued and your bank will allow
authorization. Regardless of whether a payment authorization is approved or
declined, this authorization charge is reversed immediately. However, even if
the bank declines the authorization, some people may still see the
authorization charge on their card statement and/or they may receive an SMS.
The important thing to remember is that this is not an actual charge, and it
will disappear from your statement very soon. Depending on the bank's system,
this will be automatically removed from your statement anytime from a few
minutes to a few weeks.
At DubaiFilter.com , you can use
any credit or debit card with a Visa/Mastercard logo in the front of the card.
All charges to your card will be made in AED, so if your card is issued in
another country, your bank may charge an extra foreign conversion fee.
Declines can happen for a
variety of reasons. When we submit a charge to your bank, they have automated
systems that determine whether or not to accept the charge. These systems take
various signals into account, such as your spending habits, account balance,
and card information like the expiration date and CVC. Since these signals are
constantly changing, a previously successful card might be declined in the
future. Even if all of the card information is correct, and you previously had
a successful payment, a future charge can still be declined by a bank’s
overzealous fraud systems.
