Support » Plugin: Gravitate Encryption » Transferring Credit Card Information

  • Hi,
    Quick question… I have a client that I am developing a Woocommerce site for. It will be hosted on a Dedicated Server and has an SSL Certificate. He was wondering if it was possible to do credit card transactions using an encryption method such as yours in which the information (CC number, Order Number etc) would get passed to another server in which they would log in etc. etc. to retrieve the information. He would then use the “Card Swipe” method used in the store to do the transaction of the CC Number. I mentioned that this method must also be PCI compliant as well. Is this something that is even possible or just stay away from it for security/liability reason’s and just go with a payment gateway such as

    I highly recommend that if you have the ability to use a Payment Gateway that you use that instead. Storing the Credit Card is not recommended.

    If you have to store the credit card then Yes, you can use the Symmetric or A-Symmetric methods with this plugin. This plugin is only configured to work automatically with Gravity Forms. You can use this plugin with other methods, but it is not done automatically. You will need to code it your self. View the How to Use section here: If you are going to send the data to a third party application or server then you will want to use the A-symmetric method. You will then have to create your own method that uses the Private Key to decrypt it on the other end. You will probably need a web programmer to help you with that part.

    Always test both Encryption and Decryption many times before running in production. Make sure to always back up your data every major change you make.
