When you launch your online store, security becomes a topical question. Online stores are a major target for hackers and fraudsters. It’s not surprising because e-commerce sites are the points where people leave their most sensitive information: their names, addresses and credit card details.
That’s why it’s necessary to be sure that all the data in your store is processed in a completely secure way and can’t be accessed by violators.
In Online store your customers’ information is completely safe. Here you will find out what we do to protect your customers’ data.
Regardless of whether or not you have an SSL certificate for your site, it’s important to know that Online store is always launched using an HTTPS connection. You can always verify this by inspecting the Network session of your store.
In order to indicate that the checkout is secure, Online store shows a padlock image on the checkout page.
If your store is added to a website that uses HTTP connection (without 'S'), browsers will still show that the website is not secure. You need to have your whole website run via HTTPS so that browsers marked it as secure.
Online store itself and your store in particular doesn’t deal with your customers’ credit card information.Online store doesn’t collect, store or process such data in any way.
Instead of thatOnline store supports a number of popular payment gateways. All of them can be divided into two main groups based on the way they interact withOnline store.
When a customer goes through checkout, Online store sends the order information to the payment processor and then redirects the customer securely to the payment gateway’s website page — this is, where they specify their credit card information. When the payment is done, the payment processor sends a reply (callback) containing payment status information to Online store.
So, a customer’s payment information is processed completely on the payment processor side using a secure protocol and isn’t stored or collected by Online store in any way. If you setup the payment method in your Online store, this provides a redirect from the store to payment page (for example, PayPal). Such a page uses HTTPS, so your customers can feel confident about the security of their information.
Some payment processors (e.g. Stripe, Square, etc.) are integrated with Online store quite differently.
After adding shipping information to their order, customers are not redirected to the payment processor page, but instead they see the payment form right on the checkout page of the store.
In this case Online store is working within a customer’s browser (i.e. payment information is not stored on the server where the site resides). It means that when a customer inputs their credit card information, the data is not transferred to the server where your website is stored. Online store connects straight to the payment gateway via a highly secure channel and sends a request with the data for the order. This information is not transferred to Online store servers, and is not stored or collected by us. The payment gateway performs all the necessary operations with this data and returns a callback to Online store.
