If the authorization is more than the order shipped, your card will only be billed for the true total. As of January 2010, all accounts must be secured with a Credit Card or valid PayPal account.
Verifying your Credit Card Address
Our system requires your billing address to match the address on your credit card bill. A mismatched address will result in a AVS decline and your order may be delayed. We are not responsible for delays in your order due to AVS declines.
PayPal payments should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: PayPal payments are being handled differently for currency conversion than they used to be. PayPal is being somewhat aggressive about using their conversion rates. You may want to fund your PayPal account with USD to get a better conversion rate than PayPal is offering.
If stores are not sure if they are getting a good exchange rate from PayPal we recommend they check out https://www.oanda.com/currency/converter/
You can try setting your account to send billing in currency of the invoice and let your bank (credit card) handle the conversion, however there are reports that even with this setting on each card in your account, PayPal may force their conversion anyway. To set each card:

Availability of Product may vary
E-Figures.com provides access to thousands of items from a variety of manufacturers with a customer base consisting of Retailers from around the globe.
This huge variety can create a small conflict, as not all of our Manufacturer agreements permit us to distribute their products world-wide. Because of the difficulties of populating the order system to only show items based on a specific account, were are unable to restrict items that can only ship to you. Please be aware that not all products listed are available for shipping outside the United States. This is generally due to Manufacturer agreements or United States Shipping Regulations. Therefore, you may be able to place an order for a product that will not ship to you as we have systems in place to prevent those items from shipping to locations where they would be prohibited by shipping regulations or Manufacturer agreements.

Orders and Cookies
E-Figures.com utilizes ShopSite for its frontend order processing system. The below information is intended to help you better understand how this system handles your information.
ShopSite uses browser "cookies" for both merchant and customer sessions. A cookie is a small file stored by the browser which can only be read by the same server that set it. ShopSite does not store any sensitive information, such as credit card numbers or passwords, in the cookies it uses.
When ShopSite creates a shopping cart for a customer, it will set a cookie to associate the customer with a particular shopping cart. There are several situations, in addition to adding products to a cart, which will cause a shopping cart to be created, including registered customer log-in, or coming to the store from an associate link. If the customer has cookies disabled, the shopping cart will be linked to the customer's IP address.
If a registered customer logs in, a cookie is created that tells ShopSite who it is. This is a "session" cookie, which means it will expire as soon as the customer closes their browser, or does not do anything on the store Website for an extended period of time, or if the customer completes an order.
When a customer selects tax, shipping, or payment method options, and then clicks on Checkout on the main shopping cart screen, these selections are stored in a cookie. This allows ShopSite to "remember" the customer's selections if they return to the store to place another order. The cookie will expire one year from the date it was created. If the customer's browser does not allow cookies, the "memory" feature will not be available.
When a customer enters their shipping and billing information on the Billing screen and clicks Submit This Order to complete the order, ShopSite sets another cookie. It contains the billing address (and the shipping address if a separate one is used) the customer used. It does not contain any credit card information. This cookie is set to expire one year from the date it was created. If the customer returns to the store from the same computer within this time, ShopSite will detect and read the cookie and the customer will not have to re-enter the address information. If cookies are disabled in a customer's browser, this "memory" feature will not be available to them. Merchants who are concerned about customer privacy can turn off this feature in the Thank You Screen Configuration.
