Accepting payments online
When you accept payments online you are asking your customers to trust you with their sensitive and protected information. E-commerce depends on consumers' and business' ability to trust each other, so it's essential that customers can trust you.
The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCISC) sets standards for accepting card payments, such as credit cards. You must comply with these standards. If you plan to do business online, it is important that you familiarize yourself with the PCISC's standards and take appropriate precautions. Reputable companies that can help you set up your payment system will observe the PCISC's standards.
