  1. Meet our island CRETE

Meet our island CRETE


Crete has been loved by many people, who have been studied it or visited it during the centuries. Some have considered it as the most beautiful island of the world, a miniature continent. Homer refers to it as a gaia (country) and not as an island, bearing in his mind its extent and significance. The Greek philosophers, Plato and Aristotle, regarded Crete as an example of state and legislative organisation, an ark of ancient values. In our days, its touristic resorts are overrun by millions of tourists. However, there are some corners, secret and quiet places, always there for those who approach them with respect and awe. Such places are referred in many corners of megalonisos in this guide and are suggested for demanding visitors.
The beauty of Crete is a result of the simultaneous co-existence of natural and cultural environment. In Crete there are mountainous ranges resembling the Alps, deserts and small jungles, but also regions with almost arctic or almost tropical climate. One rarely meets  this variety of landscape in a region which is relatively limited. The Cretan environment is a result of a thousand-year-old interaction between the human activity and the natural world. The material culture left by human activities is placed in a perpetual dialogue with the Cretan nature, on the ridge of this oblong “wild beast which lies in the sea”. Crete is compared to a wild beast by the most distinguished of its children, Nikos Kazatzakis; a beast agatho (decent), good, bright. In one of his books he points out: “Crete was enlightened before dark Europe. And here the soul of Greece accomplished its target: it brought god to human  scale”.
Many significant Cretologists have worked hard in order  to know today the landscape of Crete and its great civilisation, which has been created here, and has formed a foundation of the classical Greek and European culture. The importance of Cretan civilisation has been proved by their research.The adventure of the inhabitants in this large Greek island can be observed through the historical periods.
The terms Prehistory, Historical Times, Neolithic, Minoan, Mycenean, Hellenic, Roman, Byzantine, etc. have a time, historical  and cultural significance, and not only a national or racial one.Crete experienced the great Prehistory with its peak the Minoan Civilisation, the Antievity with important cultural achievements, the Dark Ages with remarkable cultural formation: the Byzantine and Post-Byzantine art and the Cretan Renaissance, as well as the Modern times marked by struggles for the national liberation and prosperity.

  1. Transaction safety

Transaction safety

Mystis online eshop makes use of Paypal safe systems for all the online transactions for its customers.

What is Paypal
PayPal allows any business or individual with an email address to securely, conveniently and cost-effectively send and receive payments online. Our network builds on the existing financial infrastructure of bank accounts and credit cards to create a global, real-time payment solution. We deliver a product ideally suited for small businesses, online merchants, individuals and others currently underserved by traditional payment mechanisms.

How secure is the PayPal site?

The PayPal site is highly secure. We use industry-leading technology (such as SSL) to keep your information safe.

PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to ours using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or log in to the PayPal site, our server checks that you're using an approved browser - one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.

Once your information reaches the PayPal site, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers.

What Makes the PayPal Site So Secure?

Our state-of-the-art fraud models and proprietary fraud engine work together to help stop fraudulent transactions before they happen. In addition, PayPal stays at the forefront of security, developing many anti-fraud technologies every year.

With PayPal, you've got the industry's most experienced fraud team on your side. PayPal processes billions of dollars in payments each year, allowing us to continually perfect our anti-fraud protections. As a result, PayPal's loss rate is significantly lower than the industry average. We also work with federal law enforcement to catch criminals.

PayPal is committed to protecting the privacy of our users. When you send or request money using PayPal, recipients never see your bank account numbers or credit card numbers. They only see your email address, date of sign-up, and whether or not you have completed PayPal's Verification process.

Benefits using PayPal?

Faster than a check
Online payments with PayPal’s Mass Payment are instant. Never again do you have to say "the check is in the mail."

Flexibility for recipients
Recipients of your payments can electronically transfer their money to a checking account, send money to friends, or shop online.

Simple record-keeping
Minimize your accounting paperwork with a downloadable transaction history. Reconcile exceptions easily by automatically returning unclaimed funds.

Competitive pricing

Buyers Can Checkout Without a PayPal Account

PayPal has optimized the checkout experience with an exciting improvement to our payment flow.

For new buyers, signing up for a PayPal account is now optional. This means your customers can complete their payments first, and then decide whether to save their information in a PayPal account for future purchases. The checkout is more convenient, resulting in more completed sales and satisfied customers.

Best of all, this upgrade requires no action on your part. The checkout automatically applies to Website Payment tools like Buy Now Buttons, Donations, and PayPal Shopping Cart, as well as our Request Money and PayPal Invoicing features.

Here’s how this easier checkout works:

 - Customers enter their name and shipping address.

 - They’re prompted for their credit card, email address, and phone number.

 - (Optional) After reviewing their information, they may choose to save their information by creating a PayPal account to make future transactions faster.

Please note that PayPal’s fraud prevention measures remain in effect for buyers who use this checkout. PayPal applies the same techniques for this checkout as it does for other transactions.
