There are some online payment security options that people can use. There are two types of online checkouts that are available to you. There is a self hosted checkout, or a regular hosted checkout. A self hosted checkout collects and transmits customer payment data on your store’s servers. This puts you at a security risk and it makes you responsible for managing secure data connection, transmission as well as storage systems. Not every single e-commerce platform ensure secure checkouts with each payment processor.
