Sleep tight, your data is secure, part 4 – Payment Processing Security
One of the most critical part of Invoicebus is the payment processing of your purchases, but don’t worry we have that covered for you.
Invoicebus is built to make you feel comfortable while doing your business, as we shown you with our previous security posts. First and foremost we have to emphasize that for processing payments we’re using third party payment processor gateway Moneybookers (soon to be rebranded to Skrill), so that means your financial transactions are secure and Invoicebus don’t have a clue about your credit card information. Skrill is the most famous European payment processor with headquarters in London, UK; have over 24.5 million users at the time of writing this and is still growing with about 100 000 new users every weak.
Here is short description about Skrill from their site:
Simplified flow of your payment process look like this:
If you’re wondering what is going on in the picture, here is the explanation:
- From Invoicebus you are redirected to secure Skrill web page. From there you can make your payment with various credit and debit cards;
- After you make your payment Skrill contacts your credit card issuing bank;
- Then funds (the amount depends on your selected plan) are transferred from your bank account to your Skrill e-wallet;
- At the end funds from your e-wallet are sent to Invoicebus Skrill account and you are redirected back to Invoicebus where you can continue making invoices.
TIP: When you are making online payments never forget to check the URL for secure data transfer with SSL. Checking this is very simple, just see if your browser address bar starts with https.
