When a web booking is received, and you have connected your Stripe account in the App Market, PodiumIO will create a pre-authorized charge in Stripe for you. The customer’s credit card information is securely transferred to Stripe, without any PodiumIO involvement.
Along with the charge, a new Stripe customer record will be created, allowing you to create any subsequent charges if required.
Stripe payment processing is the most secure form of handling credit card information and complies with PCI DSS security standard (see Stripe Security for more information).
