HotLeathers.com uses Shopify Payments as it’s credit card gateway. Shopify Payments is secured by using the tokenized method of credit card processing which means the system immediately encrypts customer credit card info and never stores the full card number or it’s associated data in any capacity that is visible by the merchant (HotLeathers.com) or by any 3rd parties. Encrypted data is tokenized and can not be viewed or decrypted.
HotLeathers.com has an excellent fraud prevention system to flag potentially fraudulent orders so that we can manually review them before processing. Our fraud prevention system works along with ALL of Shopify’s 1.75 million online stores to ensure sites are alerted when a potentially fraudulent order or code is placed anywhere in it’s systems.
