How big a security risk is involved with online payments?

0

There is very little risk for both the end-user making a payment online and the WebPay customer/location. An end-user enters their billing information into a secure form which sends the information directly to the banking networks for authorization over a secure connection. Billing information is never stored for any length of time by WebPay, so creditcard numbers or similar are always safe. There are very extensive mechanisms built into WebPay, to ensure a payment is never lost. Finally, the payment processing gateways employ extensive systems to screen and detect fraud.

There is very little risk for both the end-user making a payment online and the school or library PWP customer. An end-user enters their billing information into a secure form which sends the information directly to the banking networks for authorization over a secure connection. Billing information is never stored for any length of time in PWP or its servers, so creditcard numbers or similar are always safe. There are very extensive mechanisms built in PWP, to ensure a payment is never lost. In addition, all users authenticate against Pcounter and Active Directory/Netware NDS, so the chance of fraud is virtually non-existant.
