Purchasing From The Website

When you make pay for a product or membership  on my website and pay be credit card, debit card, apple or google pay the platform we use for processing that payment is Stripe which is fully PCI compliant. Full details of the Stripe platform are here.  Stripe significantly simplifies the PCI burden for companies that integrate with Checkout, Elements, mobile SDKs and Terminal SDKs. Stripe Checkout and Stripe Elements use a hosted payment field for handling all payment card data, so the cardholder enters all sensitive payment information in a payment field that originates directly from our PCI DSS validated servers. Stripe mobile and Terminal SDKs also enable the cardholder to send sensitive payment information directly to our PCI DSS validated servers.

With safer card acceptance methods like these, we’ll populate the PCI form (SAQ) in the Stripe Dashboard, making PCI validation as easy as clicking a button.

For all our users, regardless of integration type, Stripe acts as a PCI advocate and can help in a few different ways.
