What do I need to know about credit card payments?

There a number of things businesses should be aware of when accepting payments by credit card online.

Ease of use

Credit card is a very common, often preferred, payment method in many countries. Their wide spread acceptance and ability to process charges in multiple currencies make them the default choice for many customers.


Payment service providers and businesses handling credit card data must abide by the PCI Data Security Standards. These standards are designed to protect customers and merchants by requiring the use of extensive security protocols and data management practices. MultiSafepay is PCI compliant and merchants can use MultiSafepay Payment pages to accept credit card payments without being PCI compliant themselves.


Customers using credit card as payment method have the right to initiate a chargeback. A chargeback is a forcibly initiated reversal of funds.
