V8 Register has outsourced a major part of the V8 Clothing range to a specialist supplier

The V8 Register has outsourced the production and supply of a major part of the V8 Clothing range to a specialist supplier called Top Signs. This company has provided similar services for the MG Car Club and a number of its centres and registers for a while through an online shop Top Signs hosts on a dedicated website with an online catalogue displaying the range of clothing items. Visitors to that online shop can purchase items from Top Signs using the two online payment options - either by using your PayPal account or by paying with your debit or credit card as a PayPal guest using PayPal's Account Optional service. There is no mail order purchase option.

PayPal's Account Optional service
When you use your credit or debit card to purchase goods or services from an online merchant via the PayPal Account Optional service, a sum of electronic money equivalent to the amount of the purchase you are making is issued by PayPal and credited to the merchant’s PayPal account as payment for the goods or services you are purchasing from him. Your credit or debit card is therefore being used for the purchase of an amount of e-money which is in turn being used as payment for the goods or services from the merchant. Your credit or debit card statement will therefore show PayPal as the merchant and not the merchant from whom you are purchasing the goods or services. PayPal's Account Optional service is provided by PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. & Cie, S.C.A. which is authorised and regulated by the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier in Luxemburg.

Distance Selling Regulations
The Distance Selling Regulations (DSR) were passed to protect consumers when they shop online or enter into other contracts at a distance from the supplier. The rationale for giving consumers special protection in such deals is that the consumer does not have the benefit of meeting face-to-face with the supplier and inspecting the goods or services offered for sale. The DSR give consumers a right to
receive clear information about the supplier, the goods or services and the price before deciding to buy, confirmation of this information in writing, a cancellation period of 7 clear working days in which to withdraw from the contract and protection from payment card fraud. See a short guide from the UK Office of Fair Trading.
