Safety

Heart & Sole uses Wix Stores and Wix Payments to process transactions. Wix Payments complies with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).  The PCI DSS is the highest information security standard for organizations or companies that accept credit card payments. This standard provides protection of the privacy and confidentiality of the card's data used to complete the online transaction.  PCI Compliance helps to create a secure environment by improving the quality of the cardholder data in order to reduce the rate of credit card fraud cases. In addition, it ensures that the data for each payment is stored securely in a tamper-proof manner.  More information can be found at the Wix Data Processing Agreement – Users.

 

The Wix Stores checkout process is secured by HTTPS / TLS encryption and it is safe for your customers to purchase from your Wix site. TLS (Transport Layer Security) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and secure. TLS is the industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers.

 

Additionally, Wix Stores only works with payment gateways that offer the highest level of security certification (PCI DSS Level 1).  If you are shopping with Paypal, please visit https://www.paypal.com/us/smarthelp/home for more information.
