Currently we send your login details to you when you register.

We hadnt thought that it would be a problem as no financial details are stored on the website, everything is processed through a secure payment gateway linked to the payment processing facility, SagePay.

However some customers have said they feel this poses a security risk as sending a password in an email isnt safe.

From a business point of view, my customers welfare is my priority and if even a small percentage are wary then I can ask the webmaster to change the process.

My personal view is that i dont mind (for me), i am careful to use unique passwords on sites i log into and dont use the same password across all sites that i frequent.  I never store card details on even secured websites or any kind of payment information at all and wont use sites that do store it as a default option.  Therefore if someone hacked into my personal email account to get my password to log into my customer account on a website that i am registered with all they would have access to for their labours is my home address.

So can i have some feedback please guys

Thanks in advance

most mornings i wake up grumpy.   sometimes i just let him sleep.

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.

Right as a IT guy, I have no issues with the way its done.

Yes Email isn't secure and if I really wanted to I could potentially get hold of emails, but as you state no data is actually store on the servers it really doesn't matter, if there was payment details stored then I could see an issue.

I can see the other viewpoint, a lot of people don't use unique passwords for accounts, hell I use unique email addresses for a lot, but I just wierd :), so having the password sent to they email could be an issue, but honestly if someone hacked you email account they really don't need your password, they just get a password reset request sent to the email account and reset it :).

Why is that (i dont know anything about this stuff  :oops: ) ?
Most passwords seem to get sent by e-mail and I've never had a problem...
Its "I couldn't care less"  :tantrum:
