Our store is PCI compliant giving you absolute confidence that your payment details are safe.
This website uses the Shopify ecommerce platform and Stripe Payments which meets all 6 categories of PCI standards:
- Maintain a Secure Network
- Protect Cardholder Data
- Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program
- Implement Strong Access Control Measures
- Regularly Monitor and Test Networks
- Maintain an Information Security Policy
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organisations that handle credit card and debit card information. Defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, the standard was created to increase controls around credit card data to reduce credit card fraud via its exposure.
If you want to sell online and accept payments from Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover credit cards, your software and hosting needs to be PCI compliant.

At the checkout you can choose Paypal, Amazon Payments, G Pay and Apple Pay, so there's lots of other secure ways to pay in addition to card payments..
