Ways To Pay - Online Shopping

Here at Makro we strive to give our customers a unique and satisfying online shopping experience. Therefore we try to keep our checkout experience as short and as stress free as possible. We find the two main worries people have about a checkout process are when it comes to entering their card details, people have concerns about their method of payment and how secure that method is.

Makro is here to ease these worries. Firstly, Makro online is securely protected by Thawte so all of your transactions are safe and secure. This way you can shop in confidence and not worry about your card details security. Please look out for the Thawte time stamp on the card details payment page within the checkout process as this indicates the page and details on it are safe. The icon will have the time and date on so you know you are currently protected.

Secondly, Makro online offer a wide range of payment methods and accept most major credit and debit cards. However, please note that we do not accept American Express Cards. Please see below a list of just some of the major credit and debit cards that Makro online accept:

  • Mastercard
  • Maestro
  • Visa
  • Visa Debit
  • Visa Electron
  • We do not accept American Express
