Safe, Secure Orders at Smithfield Marketplace
Smithfield Marketplace understands your concerns about online security. Because we share your concerns, we work closely with CommerceV3 to keep our site a highly secure ordering environment - so you can shop with confidence.
The result is a Web site that offers you the high level of service, convenience and trustworthiness our customers have come to expect from us.
The Secure Order Process
Using CommerceV3's e-business software, in conjunction with features built into popular browser software, our site provides advanced security for your online purchases. The following section describes how the secure order process works, from start to finish.
The most popular Web browsers, Internet Explorer and Netscape Communicator (aka Navigator), use clear visual symbols to let you know whether or not they are in secure mode. The symbols are displayed either at the bottom left or bottom right of your browser window. You can refer to the following chart to see which symbols are used with your browser.
Another indication that a browser is in secure mode can be found in the Web site address that your browser displays. The address will begin "http://" in standard, non-secure mode and "https://"" in secure mode. The "s" stands for "secure".
Tip: Continuing to Browse
Once your order is complete, it's perfectly safe for you to continue to browse our site in standard mode. In fact, once you exit the ordering process, your browser will automatically revert to this slightly faster mode of communication.
What If I Make a Purchase with a Browser That Doesn't Support Security?
You can't. Because we don't want you ever to have to worry about ordering from our site without a secure connection, we've designed our system so that it will process orders only with browsers that support secure mode.
Please note that the latest versions of Netscape's and Microsoft's browsers have security features, and both are free for downloading. Visit either company's Web site for details.
