At Investore, we want your credit card information to be protected and well managed. That's why we use Stripe, a technology company that specializes in processing worldwide payments.
Investore does not receive or store your credit/debit card information, as it is transmitted directly to Stripe from our site via an API (application programming interface), which connects the Investore site to the Stripe system.
