We adhere to PCI PTS 4.1, the highest industry standard that ensures our card reader’s hardware and software is tamper-proof. In fact, the reader self-destructs if someone tries to interfere with it.
All credit card data is encrypted by HSMs cryptographic servers, according to the strictest standards – to make sure your customers’ sensitive information is never compromised.
In the rare case that a customer disputes a charge, Zettle offers transaction protection that covers up to £250 in eligible chargebacks per month. Manual Card Entry transactions are not eligible for transaction protection.
