Stripe is an online payment processing and credit card processing platform for businesses. When a customer buys a product online, the funds need to be delivered to the seller and Stripe facilitates this transaction. Our Checkout is powered by stripe to ensure the highest level of security available.

You can be assured that you payment details are safe with stripe, as they have 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. 

All card numbers are encrypted at rest with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe’s internal servers and daemons can obtain plaintext card numbers but can request that cards are sent to a service provider on a static allowlist.
