Our system processes credit cards in real-time using the DPS payment gateway.
The DPS payment gateway employs 128 bit SSL (secure sockets layer - also known as https//) which is a technology used to secure form / data transmissions on the web. SSL works by a server exchanging a "key" with the customer before any data is transmitted. The data is then encrypted before it is sent and decrypted by the server at the other end. Any individual intercepting this data would see what looks like garbage - jumbled data.
