David Coton and the Sage Pay Team

Sage Pay is already a system in place on our website, so we know it’s reliable but it’s also good to get a bit more information from the guys themselves and they can explain to us what certain things mean.

Who Are Sage Pay?

They explained that Sage Pay is a division of Sage which is a FTSE 100 business software company and is Europe’s leading payment service provider, sometimes known as a PSP. They process millions of secure payments every year for 40,000+ customers, which includes ourselves.

The company aim is to make sure that transactions are secure, simple and quick too, they don’t want people getting confused or having to wait around, which we can all understand.

Fraud Prevention

They use a wide range of secure methods to prevent fraud, which includes fraud screening, I.P. address screening and, if necessary, I.P. address blocking. Once data has been transferred to the Sage Pay system it is secured using internationally recognised 256-bit encryption standards.

Sage Pay is PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliant to the highest level and maintains regular security audits, they are also regularly audited by the banks and banking authorities to ensure that their systems are impenetrable.

Being PCI DSS compliant is very important, if you sell goods and accept payment by credit card then you must be, and both ourselves, and Sage Pay are. PCI DSS is a set of best practices that includes the requirement to protect data behind firewalls with robust passwords, to encrypt transmission of cardholders’ data, stay up to date with virus protection and to control who sees what.

There are 4 levels to PCI compliance and Sage Pay are top level (Level 1) certified. This gives us and should give yourself peace of mind. For more information visit SagePay.com.
