Security is critical for online monetary transactions. The Payment Card Industry (PCI)—the organizations that handle branded credit cards from the major card providers, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and JCB—provides a security standard that is often used as a reference.

Are Sharetribe marketplace transactions secure and PCI-compliant?

Sharetribe does not store or process any credit card information. All credit card information is handled by Stripe or PayPal, Sharetribe's payment gateways. Because of this, PCI-compliance is not directly applicable to Sharetribe. Stripe and PayPal are fully PCI-compliant and trusted payment processors.

That being said, Sharetribe takes security issues very seriously and follows best practices to make sure that your marketplace data is safe.
