256bit Secure Certificates (SSL)
Cardstream can supply 256bit secure certificates, verified by Equifax.
A secure certificate issued by an approved authority, such as Equifax, guarantees to your users that you are who you say you are, and that your connection is properly secured. SSL (secure socket layer) certificates are a requirement for any merchant that wishes to use Cardstream's direct integration, to ensure that card details are protected throughout the entire transaction.
SSL certificates can be expensive and it can take days or even weeks to receive your validated certificate. Cardstream uses domain control validation and can therefore turn most certificates around in a matter of hours or minutes. Further, at just £95.00 per year we are one of the cheapest sources for 256bit secure certificates.
