If you’re an entrepreneur with an online business, you know the name of the game is building your customer base and keeping those customers coming back. In order to do that, you need to have a plan in place that protects your customers’ credit card information, and it must be one that they feel is safe and secure. In a world where fraud happens so often it’s almost expected among online shoppers, it is important to put your shoppers’ online safety at the forefront of what you do. Not only will you preserve your reputation, you’ll also save yourself a whole lot of money and angst – a hack can be costly to clean up, it can damage your reputation with customers and there can be fines assessed.
