expondo's FAQ


Advice & Information

Where can I get advice?

Our sales team will be happy to advise you on our products or answer other questions. You can contact us via our contact form. In addition, our telephone hotline 016 336 035 30 is available from Mon - Fri 09:30 - 16:30.

What should I do if I’m experiencing issues while paying by credit or debit card?

New PSD2 states that in future you will be asked to confirm your identity in a separate step when making online payments. This additional authentication proves that you are actually using your card (and not someone pretending to be you). Contact your bank and ask about the authentication methods they offer. This can be a code sent via SMS or email or a fingerprint in your banking app. Once the process is in place, your card payments will be even more secure.

Of course, private customers can also order from us. Our forms for order process are adapted for both commercial and private customers.
