Braintree Checkout Page
It is common for e-commerce frameworks to use direct communication to receive and transmit credit card data to a payment gateway. Using this approach requires credit card information to be obtained by the web server and this information is then sent to the payment gateway. If a server handles credit card data it is put under heavy PCI scrutiny. Implementing a third party solution like PayPal, Stripe, BluePay, or Braintree drastically reduces PCI scope because the credit card data is entered on the gateway’s server. In the client checkout page shown we implemented Braintree’s Hosted Fields, a set of iframes that were customized to seamlessly integrate with the website’s look and feel.
