Security is one of our top priorities here at Paystack

All the security you need – already built-in. Fraud checks, updates and verifications are all part of our daily routine here to ensure all systems are protected, and meet the latest industry standards.

Secure By Design

Paystack is based on a single-tenant architecture. Your customer data and transactions are stored in their own database, separate from other users. Encrypted backups are being made regularly.

PCI DSS Compliant

PCI DSS is in place to meet industry standard levels of security when storing, processing, and transmitting cardholder information. We are PCI DSS compliant, meaning that we securely handle your payment and transaction data. This certification also includes regular audits by a qualified security assessor (QSA) who is accredited by both MasterCard and Visa.

3-D Secure

By default, Paystack enables you to use additional fraud prevention features provided by Visa and MasterCard to protect you from fraudulent transactions. It allows your customers to assign a username and password to their card, which then provides an additional level of security for both you and your customers. Adding 3-D Secure to your checkout flow ensures your customer is actually the credit card holder, allowing you to keep chargebacks under control whilst offering protection on successfully verified transactions.
