Hello again!

I have one question if anyone has experience about this - I ordered a game five minutes ago and I realized - too late, sadly - that I forgot to write the expiration date on the card. I know, I'm not used to shopping on the internet.
So, what should I do now - should I send another order form or send them an e-mail - anyone has any experience?

An email explaining what happened should work. As far as I know, the system is small enough that its not heavily automated, so your email will be read and incorporated into your order.

I think they may actually process each transaction individually, so yeah - go ahead and email.

Just don't give the card number out in the same email! Emails are unencrypted data, available to read for anyone with the required skills. Giving the expiration date, your name and explaining the situation should be sufficient.

Except that intercepting two emails is inconsequentially more difficult than intercepting one. So splitting up the information is not quite as secure as using ROT13.

Since the card number was sent in via the encrypted order form, giving additional non-number information by email doesn't actually make things much less secure.

I know the card number was initially sent encrypted. The reason I gave the warning was in case AnarhIztok decided to be extra helpful with his email á là: "Hello, I just purchased game X with credit card no. XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, and forgot the expiration date, which is YY/ZZ. My name is John Doe." Now that would've been dumb.

I don't care that much about what you have to say. Sorry.

—Alorael, who addressed Aran with his previous comment, not you. Although really, sending two different emails from two different locations and two different addresses ought to up your security as long as the problem is on your end and not Jeff's.

OK! Thanks! It all worked out OK! I just sent an e-mail.
And don't worry - I figured they'd know who I am since I sent from an address which I gave at purchasing.

ps: Sorry for the delayed reply (in case you cared how it went:)), but I've been snowboarding and then fell sick, so the game really came at an appropriate time. :)

Next time that happens, just send all your information to me. I'll take care of it.
