Financial security

Security is probably one of the most significant concerns for both the shopper and the retailer during an online transaction. Wild Place uses PayPoint.net payment system which uses a combination of both established and innovative techniques to ensure the security and integrity of all sensitive data.

Transaction Encryption

PayPoint.net provides all the security required for the transmission and storage of card details using SSL, encryption minimum 128 bit and firewalls. Paypoiny.net's Gateway Hosted solutions are PCI DSS certified.

Security for the Shopper

PayPoint.net adhere strictly to card scheme and banking industry best practice. They are also amongst the first payment companies to implement DDoS prevention technology, and one of the few to be PCI DSS Level 1 certified. Shoppers are also protected from fraudulent use of their card in a "card not present" environment, by their card issuers. The card issuers provide the right for shopper to dispute a transaction if the goods/services did not arrive or if the card was used fraudulently.
