We are now accepting Credit Cards!

We are pleased to announce that as of 29th December 2015, we are accepting credit/debit cards as payment for any of our Website Design, Website Development and Website Hosting!

Before this, customers were limited to PayPal or Bank Transfers. We understand that not everyone uses PayPal or wants to send payments directly via their Bank Account.

This is why we’ve enabled this feature, allowing you to use a payment method that suits you.

The security of your information and credit/debit card details is our top priority which is why we’ve chosen Stripe as our payment processor.

The following text may contain some “techy” words. If you have any questions about our credit/debit card payment processor, just drop us an email at billing@algwebsites.co.uk with any questions and we’ll happy assist.

Using stripe has some of the following benefits:

  • Your card details never touch our servers – Stripe allows our website to convert your credit card details to a unique token which is sent directly to their servers. Because this method uses JavaScript, there is no need for our servers to store or process your card data.
  • PCI – 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.
  • Encryption – All card numbers are encrypted on disk with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe’s internal servers or daemons are able to obtain plaintext card numbers; instead, they can just request that cards be sent to a service provider on a static whitelist. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in separate hosting infrastructure and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services (API, website, etc.).
  • SSL – Stripe forces HTTPS for all services, including their public website. They regularly audit the details of their implementation: the certificates they serve, the certificate authorities they use, and the ciphers they support.

If you wish to read more about Stripe and/or their security you can visit their website and take a look at their article on security.

Just like PayPal, using your credit/debit card for payment will be instant (ensuring your card is valid, has funds and the order passes our fraud check) so there won’t be any delay in the processing of your order!

Stripe doesn’t just accept credit and debit cards, it also accepts Bitcoin! We are working with Stripe to enable this as another payment method and will hopefully be announcing its launch in the coming months.

Once again, if you have any questions about this new payment method, drop us an email billing@algwebsites.co.uk.

Any other questions, you can contact us via Facebook, Twitter or hello@algwebsites.co.uk.
