Manual Credit Card Collection - Potential Problems

Why you shouldn’t use manual credit card processing with online stores

Older payment modules like credit card and CEON Manual Card are not recommended for the following reasons:

  • they are not PCI Compliant
  • storing credit card details in your database means both the store owner and the customer at risk in the event of a breach.
  • in some countries it is no longer legal to do this
  • it could be a violation of your merchant agreement

So what are your options?
