Isn't this a bit dodgy? If you had a stolen card, you could order the goods
over the phone, and then go pick them up, all without having to match a
signature. Ok, for cinema tickets you would have to buy a lot of tickets
quickly before the card was reported stolen, but for larger purchases it
would be feasible.

Of course if you don't take the payment online, then the merchant will run
the risk of people ordering things and not picking them up. However, if you
do a "customer not present" transaction I was under the impression that
some merchant agreements forbid the merchant from handing the goods over in



P.S. Regarding boo.com, Ben, I'm pretty sure you can imagine what has been
said, and what the cause of the problems were.
