Stripe is a quick and easy way to process payments and store credit cards online which allows a much better experience for our customers by not having to constantly search for your physical credit cards.
We use Stripe because all of your payment details and transactions are securely encrypted, protected and stored through Stripe. Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry.
When you make a purchase using the checkout form, it sends the credit card information directly from your browser to Stripe's servers. Stripe verifies the card, stores it if successful and returns a temporary token. The temporary token and the order details are submitted to our server. And that's how an order is processed. You never left our website and our servers never handled any sensitive information.
This gives you the convenience of stored credit cards, with all the security of Stripe.
