FAQ: How secure is your payment processing?

Answer:

Oak Roads is hosted on the Shopify platform which is trusted by over 165,000 online store owners.

Hitting the Checkout button in your Oak Roads cart will transfer you and your items to Shopify's checkout.shopify.com server to complete the purchase flow. You'll notice a lock symbol appear in your browser's address bar and the prefix will switch from "http:" to "https:" to indicate that you are in a secure environment. Shopify uses 128-bit encrypted SSL certificates and is fully PCI compliant. Shopify store owners never see your credit card information, PayPal authentication token, or Bitcoin key.

Shopify is a publicly traded company based out of Ontario, Canada, and has been in business since 2005. Their technology handles over $3.7 billion in annual sales. When the Heartbleed security exploit impacted the web in 2014, Shopify was able to resolve the issue within hours - quicker than even Google and Yahoo!
