Do we accept Maestro?

Maestro cards require 3D Secure and as a result are not supported by Stripe.
Maestro cards, while common a few years ago in the UK, are being phased out and have mostly been replaced by Visa and MasterCard Debit cards. Their rarity means that you're unlikely to encounter problems.
However, we should be able to accept Maestro via the SagePay/Elavon set-up that we keep as a back-up for processing payments.
Alternatively, the guest could use a different card to make a payment, or send us payment via a bank transfer. The latter should only be used if there really only are no other options, as it makes tracking payments more difficult.
