Are my card details secure when using Sage pay?

Before entering your card details on payment page, there are a few things that you can look for to ensure the page is secure.

Does Sage Pay have a padlock?

A padlock image shows that your details are being collected securely using 128 bit SSL technology.  Clicking on the padlock will show you the SSL certificate. Depending on what Internet web browser you’re using, the padlock can be located in 3 different areas

  • Bottom right hand corner
  • Top right hand corner
  • Next to the address bar

What else can I look for?

If you can’t see a padlock on the payment page, make sure the ‘URL’ starts with ‘https’ and not just ‘http’.  The ‘s’ shows that the page is secure.
