 Security

If your business is responsible for the theft of credit card details due to slack security you might be liable to very large fines so don’t risk it! Don’t hold onto card details within your website and don’t use any credit card systems that are not PCI accredited.

We leave this level of security to the experts so you can be assured that your e-commerce site will not be vulnerable to credit card theft. No card details are held on our servers, and you as the business don’t see them at any point.

 

Payment options

It is important to give your customers an easy way to pay or they will move on. Having to send a cheque or wait to hear the full cost of their order will make them go where they can buy online in one easy process.

    These all offer online credit card payments without the need for a merchant bank accounts. They take a commission from each transaction and download the balance to your bank. These are sometimes a bit limited in what they can offer you in terms of reporting etc but they can be cheaper if you don’t do a lot of online business but the commission can make it expensive if you do a lot of online business.
