Do Browns offer gift wrapping?

When placing your order, you can choose to have your items gift wrapped and to include an optional gift message. Your gift purchase will arrive in a signature browns box, tied with a ribbon and will include a gidt card with the message you provided. The invoice will be sealed in a separate envelope so that this information is not immediately disclosed with the recipient.

An Error message says my card details are incorrect?

Please ensure that you enter your card details exactly as they appear on the payment card including your name. Please enter the card number without any spaces. The CVV number is the last three digits on the signature strip on the reverse of the card. The issue may be caused by 3DSecure (Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode) verification which is a system setup by your card issuer to manage online fraud and protect your account. This system is managed by your bank so it may be worth contacting them to check that there are no problems with the 3DSecure system on your account.

I am experiencing problems with my SecureCode number/3D Security pop up window?

Your SecureCode/3D Secure number is personal to your VISA or MasterCard. When you purchase from most retailers at the end of the online transaction a window appears and will ask you for this number. If you have forgotten the number you are given the option of re-setting the number. If you choose this option you will be prompted to answer some security questions. You will then be able to set a new secure number.

I have re-set my SecureCode/3D secure number and entered it into the form and it is still not working?

If your order has been successful you will receive an email with your order number. If you do not receive an email from Browns with your order number an order has not been placed. You can contact your bank to ask them why your SecureCode/3D Secure number is not working. It could be that your bank needs authorization from the cardholder to allow the payment.

I have spoken to my bank about my SecureCode/3D secure number and they are saying there is nothing wrong.

Please call or email a customer services advisor and we can advise you further.
