US-based ClickBid has deployed Braintree Payments security solution to offer PCI compliant non-profit mobile bidding for silent auctions.
The company said that the six-year partnership with Braintree will enable it to offer complete security of card data. Hosted fields provide a way to present payment forms directly from a PCI Level 1 provider and allow card data to be transferred, stored and used within a fully compliant environment.
ClickBid founder Matthew Burnell said: "PCI compliance is about securing credit card data from where it is entered on-screen to the networks the data is transmitted over to the storage facility where it is kept. Our rollout of hosted fields ensures that this entire pathway is secure."
Partner Tom Huneke said: "Mitigating credit card security risk is a major concern for our clients. Our implementation of hosted fields provides our clients with the best credit card security available. It demonstrates our continued industry leadership in developing Simple Mobile Giving solutions."
All major credit cards will be accepted and customers will have to pay a flat percentage rate rather than being charged processing, compliance, per-transaction and additional fees, the company said.
