Leading online retailer Flipkart has received certification of Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard 2.0, a leading security standard for payment card processing.

This means the company’s proprietary technology and platform, stores and processes data are in a secured environment pre-empting the risk of data theft and fraud.

The certification has been awarded by SISA Information Security, a qualified security assessor from PCI Security Standards Council after an extensive independent audit.

Flipkart has also launched a ‘Save Card’ feature on its technology platform through which users can save and invoke the details of an existing credit or debit card in their account, thus doing away with the additional step of typing in card information for every transaction.

“We have always focused on technology that can make the platform for e-commerce not only easier – but safer as well. With more transactions happening online, it has become extremely important to be able to offer a trust-worthy and secure payment environment,” said Mekin Maheswari, President (Technology), Flipkart.
