How did they get you to "doubt" the payment system? Really, you can give your credit card to pay for your dinner and wind up getting screwed by a credit card thief. Read Jeff's comments on the system and buying from the internet. Read the details on your credit card contract...most cover for theft anyway...and-if you are referring/alluding to the email problems when the hacker got the list-read Jeff's notes on that...he stated clearly that credit card numbers etc were not compromised. I have purchased twice through the links on this site and have had a great experience with it. Have you had a problem?

I have never before dealt with such a responsible, friendly shareware company such as Spiderweb. I feel like when you buy from Spiderweb you become "part of a family" and I feel safe and secure that Jeff takes care of us, his customers and fans.

Also, if the friends are that paranoid, there are alternative ordering methods outlined on the site. I understand some concern, but, despite the media reports there are honest, good dealers online; the bad ones just get all the press. I would say to them "I had no problems. Jeff and his company are great! Buy today!"

I had no problems the three times I used their payment system. I haven't heard any other complaints on this board either.

Even if your credit card number would get stolen, the company will pick up the bill for you. So there is no risk, as long as you check your monthly statements carefully. And I've heared of more credit card numbers stolen in regular stores then online.

PS And I can also say that I haven't heard any complaints about Spidweb. In fact, one time I accidentally payed them twice for the same game and they didn't charge my card the second time.

Can also have the power to heal.

You could read Spiderweb's official statement on their online ordering system.

—Alorael, who would say the best recommendation is that there are several thousand members on these boards, most of whom have purchased at least one game and none of whom have ever mentioned problems with online ordering. But if you're still worried, take Felwynne's advice and order by phone or by mail.

Oh man. Don't let Alec see this...

By the way, due to my mom's paranoia, I have ordered every Spiderweb game I own by mail. It takes about a week, and I'm in New York, all the way across the country from Seatle.

I usually order by mail, mainly cause I'm under 18 and have no credit card. Yay for Money Orders, the prefered way of paying stuff as far as I am concerned.

What? I ordered every game from them from E2 to A2, and in each case by credit card.

Stop blowing hot air at people.

Never mind, I thought this was gonna spark a long rambling complaint against Jeff, Spiderweb, and everything involved with either.

I don't see how anyone could complain. I ordered a two games on a Friday morning (from work :) ) got the code before I left work and got the cd and letter on the following Monday. I live in upstate NY. Excellent service! Excellent games! BoE is next....
