Why have you asked me for ID?
When we process payment on your card, we electronically send your billing address to your card issuer. Your card issuer then prompts you for 3D secure information such as a password. Normally they confirm that the card is correctly registered to that address. If you have entered a billing address incorrectly or one at which your card is not registered to, we will ask you for ID to confirm your identity. This is standard anti-fraud procedure to protect us and the general card-using public. If you are not happy to provide ID, we will promptly refund your order at your request.
