You probably know that credit card processors must comply with very strict security when handling a person’s credit card and bank account information – and so must you! But more importantly, your customer wants to feel safe and secure when they’re handing over their credit card information. It’s one of the biggest reasons for high bounce rates off an order page. Here are a few quick questions you can ask your self to check your site is trustworthy: Question 1: Is your privacy policy clearly stated? Question 2: Is your return policy clearly stated? Question 3:You should not store your buyer’s credit card information on your system. If you have to store the information for any reason, are you comfortable with your own level of security? Question 4: Are you PCI Compliant? Many Merchant Account Processors require you to use a service that constantly checks and validates the security of the buyer’s information that is captured by your shopping cart. This is known as PCI security protection. If you process your customer’s credit card details through a shopping cart on your site, and you do not yet have PCI Protection, we recommend that you contact your payment processing provider and check if it is a requirement with them for you to have PCI protection.
