Depending on your payment method, your purchase from Adam & Eve will be displayed as either “Adam Mail,” “Adameve,” or “Adameve.com.”
Read on for an in-depth description of different payment methods — including screenshots from REAL Adam & Eve purchases we made ourselves — and how they show up on various billing statements.
- How Will Purchases From Adam & Eve Show On My Bank Or Debit Card Statement?
To ensure the utmost discretion, purchases made from Adam & Eve will appear as “Adam Mail” on bank statements when you use a debit card that has a credit card company logo.
After we made a purchase from Adam & Eve, we took a screenshot from the online bank statement to verify:
So if your next-door neighbor also happens to be your bank teller, you can buy all the clitoral vibrators and cock rings you want and they’ll never know you purchased them from Adam & Eve — unless they’ve also made a purchase themselves!
- How Will Purchases From Adam & Eve Appear On My Credit Card Statement?
Purchases made using a card credit card will also appear as “Adam Mail” on your statement. We verified this by making our own purchase and included the screenshot below:
Additionally, we waited for our monthly credit card statement to arrive via postal mail to make sure there weren’t any surprises or changes in the way the purchase was listed on paper.
As we soon discovered, the Adam & Eve charge was listed as “Adam Mail” on our paper credit card statement, too:
- How Will A Purchase From Adam & Eve Show Up On My PayPal History?
Since PayPal does not permit the use of an alias, the purchase will be listed as “Adameve” or “Adameve.com” in your PayPal history.
We tested this out ourselves by making a purchase using our PayPal balance and discovered that it actually shows up as “Adameve.com.”
Knowing this, anyone with access to your PayPal account will be able to see that you made a purchase from Adam & Eve’s website.
That said, PayPal does at least provide a way to shop online without using your credit card directly.
If you use Instant Transfer to pay for your purchase, the charge will appear as above in your PayPal account but may be listed as “PayPal,” followed by a phone number on your bank statement or credit card bill.
That number is associated with PayPal’s own customer service department, and not Adam & Eve.
- Can I Use Amazon Pay To Make Discreet Purchases From Adam & Eve?
Just like PayPal, Amazon Pay does not permit the use of an alias, so a purchase from Adam & Eve will show up as “Adameve” or “Adameve.com.”
- How Can I Purchase From Adam & Eve With Even Greater Privacy?
If you’re really worried about anonymity when making a purchase from Adam & Eve, there is a way to add an extra layer of protection between your sex toy preferences and your personal identity.
Prepaid debit and credit cards can be used online and at retail stores.
When a person buys this type of card, it has no connection to their identity, especially if the purchase is made using cash.
You can buy a non-specific prepaid gift card through American Express, Visa, or another credit card company.
Many convenience stores and supermarkets also sell this type of prepaid credit card, as well, but there may be usage fees attached.
- Will My Purchases From Adam & Eve Arrive Discreetly?
When ordering from Adam & Eve, a company that advocates for personal privacy, items are packed in nondescript boxes and envelopes. The company name will not be visible anywhere on the package.
Adam & Eve uses brown boxes for large sex toys and multiple orders. Bubble mailers are reserved for smaller purchases, such as lubes, lingerie, and adult movies.
If it is required by postal regulations, Adam & Eve will include a mailing address and phone number in the ‘from’ field on the package; otherwise, that field will be left blank.
The mailing address does not include a company name.
If you’re at all concerned over the privacy of Adam & Eve’s packaging, we tested out the process ourselves and documented our findings here — with photographs of their discreet packaging included.
- Will I Get Promotional Material, Catalogs Or Emails From Adam & Eve After I Make A Purchase?
Depending on how you place your order with Adam & Eve, you may receive promotional material in the mail.
We discovered that during the checkout process, you’re given the option to create an account.
Creating an account is optional, however, creating an account enables you to “manage your email and catalog preferences,” according to the pop-up explanation in the “Create An Account” field.
We tested this out so you don’t have to, creating an account to see how the catalog and email options are set up.
After completing our order and making an account at Adam & Eve, we went straight to the “My Account” page to take a look at those options.
The catalog preferences are set to “Yes, Mail Catalog” by default.
So if you’re not into entertaining your mail carrier with catalogs from Adam & Eve, you’re going to want to set your account preferences immediately.
Similarly, the default email preference in your account is set to send you daily emails from Adam & Eve until you change that setting yourself.
Additionally, their emails arrive in your inbox with a little red apple icon in the subject line.
So if you share a computer or email account with someone, or are in an enclosed space where others can see your emails or computer screen, be aware of these settings.
If you don’t want to create an account at Adam & Eve, you can check out as a guest.
Checking out as a guest enables you to toggle preferences for “Send me exclusive free product offers and discounts” and an option to join Adam & Eve Alerts to receive text messages.
Some people still prefer to use paper order forms from catalogs but those forms do not have a box that can be checked to stop potential mailings.
If you’re not interested in receiving promotional materials — especially in the mail — we recommend creating an account at Adam & Eve so you can have complete control over those preferences.
Shopping at Adam & Eve is a discreet experience overall — with a couple of minor caveats.
We took one for the team so that you can take your sex life to the next level with confidence and without fear of anyone finding out what you’re up to in the bedroom — unless you want them to.
