    Hey guys,

    I’m doing some research on this (and driving Ben crazy I’m sure) and just wanted to ask how PCI should best be handled with this plugin? From my understanding, using this gateway classifies the site as an A-EP (http://strongboxpayments.com/wp-content/uploads/PCI-3.0-SAQ-Chart1.jpg) which requires quarterly scans and a yearly pen test in order to be fully compliant. I just wanted to make sure I was understanding the way the plugin works (the plugin directly posts payment info from our site to the merchants site), so we can plan for the necessary measures to stay compliant.

    Hi Chris!

    The important thing to note is that the Stripe gateway is PCI compliant, but as to what level, I am not sure. No card data is stored on your webserver, only a token is stored. That token identifies to Stripe as to what card to recharge/refund/store, and that token is unique only to your site and only Stripe can decode it.

    You should have no problems being PCI compliant with our Stripe gateway.
