Editor World uses industry standard (256-bit SSL) encryption for communications between our site and your computer. This is the strength used for top retail stores and cash machines (ATMs). When you pay by credit card, we do not store your card details on our servers; the fields where you enter your card credit details are served directly to your computer by our secured payment processor, and card details are communicated directly to our processor and your issuing bank, all over encrypted connections. Editor World strives to ensure that your work and personal details are safe.

Our preferred method of payment is via credit card. Editor World accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, UnionPay, and JCB cards. We have a secure credit card processing system provided by Payeezy. We also accept payments through PayPal. Clients also have the option of adding credit to their account to use in the future. In this case, clients purchase the credit with a credit card or PayPal and then select "Credit" when submitting a document for editing. The cost of the transaction will then be deducted from the total credit amount.  

Payment information is submitted at the same time you place your order. When your payment has been approved, the editor selected receives a notification of the transaction and begins work on the document. To avoid delays in processing your order and returning the revised document to you, please be sure to provide an accurate word count. We double check the word count paid for in the transaction with the word count in the uploaded document.

This is helpful for individuals and businesses that must pay for services before a specific funding period ends.

In this case, the client pays for editing services now, adding credit to his or her account, and can use them for editing and proofreading services in the future.
