Handling of online payments has come a long way since the early days of e-commerce. Unsuspecting customers had their credit card data carelessly sent by email or stored unencrypted on the web server. Fortunately for the user today, the payment industry has established requirements for the secure handling of credit card data.
If you are an internet vendor, it’s important for you to realize and comply with the responsibilities set forth by the PCI (Payment Card Industry) standards. The penalties for not doing so can be harsh. To that end, we recommend PCI compliant hosted shopping carts or a payment form hosted by a PCI compliant company such as your gateway provider. This moves the full responsibility for compliance to your shopping cart provider or your merchant gateway provider.
