Is WeCashUp secure?

The WeCashUp’s technical infrastructure is PCI/DSS Compliant and we use the Blockchain technology to assure the maximum security possible to our merchants’ transactions. We also use Google Cloud Platform as Cloud Infrastructure under the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and high level security firewalls (Anti-Hacking & Anti-DDOs) such as CLOUDFLARE. We also oblige merchants to have an SSL certificate in their web infrastructure to make sure end-to-end encrypted communications between their platforms and ours. For those who have no SSL certificate, we help them acquire an affordable one via our partnership with DIGICERT, an SSL certification company based in Boston, USA.


How do I get a SSL certificate?

WeCashUp can only be integrated to secure websites. To get a SSL certificate:

  • Host with a dedicated IP address - With a dedicated IP, you ensure that the traffic going to that IP address is only going to your website and no one else’s.If you don’t have a website hosting plan with a dedicated IP you can ask your current web host to upgrade your account to have a dedicated IP address. There will probably be a charge for it.
  • Buy a certificate - You can affordable acquire an SSL certificate with our partner DIGICERT on their website, For a discount feel free request.
  • Activate the certificate - Follow the instructions to install and activate your SSL certificate.
  • Update your site to use HTTPS.
