All direct payment gateways offered by Wix.com and used by our company adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry-Data Security Standard) as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
