Our credit card payments are powered by Stripe.
What is Stripe?
Stripe is a company that allows businesses to accept credit card payments directly through their website. Basically, it's a nifty bit of code that allows you to enter your credit card details securely into our site which enables a speedy checkout.
How secure is Stripe?
Stripe has 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.
SOHMO doesn't actually get to see your card number, expiry date or cvv.
Does SOHMO store my credit card details?
No. When you checkout, you'll see a little checkbox asking if you want to save your card details for later. Rest assured, your details are not saved on SOHMO's servers. Stripe encrypts all card numbers on disk with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines.
Do I need to have a Stripe account?
No. Stripe processes your payment on our website without the need for you to sign up to any other accounts.
