Update Dec 23, 2014:
Yes! In the five+ years that we have been running Dad's business, we have been impressed with the friendliness and integrity of everyone we have met and done business with, and we now realize "security" would not be an issue with these fellas.
We have found an e-commerce site that works well for digital downloads (e-junkie.com) and are in the process of modifying our web site to allow PDF downloads for all of Dad's plans. Obviously, there are no shipping cost, so you save that, along with a 10% savings since we don't have to use up our ink, paper and envelopes.
Just click the "Download PDF" button, and you will be directed to a new page to enter your payment. Select "Paypal" or "Credit Card", complete the payment, and then you will be directed to another page with a download link. Click the link, and the plans will download to your computer. You will also receive an e-mail with this link.International buyers: We highly recommend you use this feature
, as USPS shipping cost overseas tripled in early 2013. Our web site (linked to Paypal) allows only one rate structure by weight, and thus our shipping rates are based on the more expensive "package" rates, not the cheaper "flats" (large envelopes). So if you wish for your plans to be mailed, the minimum cost is $8.55, but depending on total order weight, could be as much as $20.00
