Why do I need to verify my payment information?
At Gearbest we want to ensure our customers complete payment safety when shopping with us.
Unfortunately, sometimes online scams steal people's credit card details or PayPal account information and then use these details to make online purchases.
In order for Gearbest to help combat this we will conduct random verification checks.
When you pay us, your credit card is processed via PayPal and not by Gearbest directly. Therefore, we have not seen any of your financial details. This is why, we have to ensure whether the payment was authorized by the payment account holder or not.
The information that you give to us during these checks will be used strictly for this verification process only and will be deleted from our systems once your order has passed. All of our customers information is treated as strictly confidential and will not be passed on or sold to any third party.
