Fifth Element works to ensure the security of transactions with our clients and therefore we only work with the safest means of payment. All communications with sensitive data are secured by SSL certificate. Below we detail the payment systems that our online store currently has.
Virtual POS Caixa Banc ("la Caixa")
The virtual POS (SERMEPA) is a device prepared to work in a totally safe way within the operations of sales through the Internet, that is:
A.- It will try to contact the issuing bank of the card to request the authentication of the owner (verification of their identity) before requesting the corresponding request for authorization. In this way, it is guaranteed that only the genuine holder, owner of the card, will be able to operate with it.
B.- It implements SSL in all communications that prevent the interception of information by third parties. Therefore, confidentiality is ensured in all communications established during the transaction.
C.- It also enables mechanisms to prove the authenticity of the origin of the transactions and that also prevent the manipulation of data by third parties. In this way, the integrity of the transaction data is ensured.
D.- The card data is not known to Fifth Element, thus preventing this information from being used later by fraudulently third parties. (The best way to safeguard sensitive customer information is NOT to have it). This information is conveniently stored by the Virtual POS, which in turn will provide it to the payment system when necessary (for example, in a return).
Therefore, all transactions made through the Virtual POS will have all the guarantees of security, confidentiality and integrity for the participating agents: cardholders and their issuing entities, and businesses and their purchasing entities.
The Virtual POS will be updated with the latest Secure payment versions issued by international organizations.
How does it work?
1. The merchant contacts the Virtual POS and provides the transaction details: the amount, the currency, the identification and the name of the merchant.
2. The Virtual POS requests the card and expiration date from the customer.
3. The Virtual POS contacts the financial institution that issued the card.
4. The issuing entity requests authentication from the client. The client can prove his identity by means of a password, a phone call, etc. as agreed with your issuing entity.
5. The Virtual POS requests authorization from the issuing entity.
It may happen in some cases that the issuing entity and the cardholder have not yet agreed on any authentication method, so step 4 does not always it is carried out, although from the point of view of the Fifth Element the transaction remains secure.

Bank transfer or deposit account is the preferred system for those still wary of online payment. Payment by bank transfer or deposit account is, and will continue to be, the safest system, although little by little it is relegated due to its non-automaticity when making a purchase.
Bank transfer or deposit into account means a delay in the management of your purchase which will not enter the preparation process until it has been confirmed.
Transfer or deposit into account?
The bank transfer enjoys the convenience of making a payment from your trusted office by ordering a transfer of money from your checking or savings account to the one indicated by you as the destination account. This method has the exception of the collection of a commission by your office if the payment is not made to another of the same bank or box.
The account deposit is the displacement on your part to the office chosen by you for payment and payment of the agreed amount to one of the accounts made available to you for the payment of your purchases. This operation has no associated commission.
Confirmation of the transfer
Your order will enter the packaging process once the payment has been confirmed. The item ordered by you will remain reserved for 7 days during which you can make the payment. For our part, we will carry out reviews of our accounts in search of the same.
If you want to speed up the delivery of your order, send us a copy of the proof of transfer or deposit account to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will proceed to packaging and shipping thereof.
