Point-to-point encryption (P2PE) is a standard established by the PCI Security Standards Council . Payment solutions that offer similar encryption, but do not meet the P2Pe standard are referred to as end-to-end encryption (E2Ee) solutions. The objective of P2Pe and E2Ee is to provide a payment security solution that instantaneously converts confidential payment card (credit and debit card) data and information into indecipherable code at the time the card is swiped to prevent hacking and fraud . It is designed to maximize the security of payment card transactions in an increasingly complex regulatory environment.

Call us today to see if your business is protected with P2PE!

  1. Offer both plastic gift cards and e-gift cards.
  2. Promote your gift cards on social media.
  3. Market gift cards as a self-gifting option.
  4. Use gift cards as promotional items.
  5. Offer deals on gift cards themselves.

  7. Use gift cards to reward loyal customers.
  8. Promote gift cards more heavily as Christmas draws near.
