Secure transmission of data

Pay Subs Online take's the security of your information very seriously. Information is stored securely on dedicated servers housed in a 2000 m2 purpose built data centre. When transferring data between our servers and the user’s computer (administrators and members), we use the same technology as banks and financial institutions - SSL (Secure Socket Layer) to protect the information.

This works through a combination of programs and encryption/decryption routines meaning your information is kept safe in transmission. The secure connection is highlighted in your browser address bar where you will see HTTPS in green indicating the connection is secure.

Secure Transactions

Whether accepting payment by Debit / Credit Card or by Direct Debit (UK Clients), you can be safe in the knowledge that your members and your organisations financial information is fully protected.

Pay Subs Online has integrated two industry leading payment providers - PayPal and GoCardless:

Debit / Credit Card Payments processed by PayPal
With over 200 million account holders, PayPal delivers one of the most secure payment platforms in the world. All financial information (like bank account details and credit card numbers) is securely stored and encrypted on their servers so you don’t need to share your financial information with the person sending the money and expose your details online.

In addition, your transactions are monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by a dedicated team of security specialists whose sole purpose is to identify suspicious activity and help protect you from fraudulent transactions. If a transaction doesn’t go as planned, or you’re worried about anything at all, like fraud or phishing, it’s easy for you to report issues and get help.

Direct Debit payments processed by GoCardless
GoCardless uses military grade encryption to keep financial information safe. Registered with the FCA, GoCardless accesses the Direct Debit network through its sponsor bank, The Royal Bank of Scotland.

Direct Debit is the UK’s preferred way to take regular payments with over £1 trillion collected each year.

Direct Debit payments are backed by the Direct Debit Guarantee which protects customers from payments taken in error. In the case of any incorrect or fraudulent payments, the payer is entitled to a full and immediate refund from their bank giving members who pay by Direct Debit complete peace of mind.
