MIKE T.,

Thank you for using SiteJabber to reach Proxibid. Overall, adding a credit card to Proxibid is safe. This is one of the reasons Proxibid is the most trusted way to connect buyers and seller of highly valued items. For more information, we encourage you to visit: https://content.proxibid.com/trust/

When a bidder registers their credit card with Proxibid, we conduct several validation steps to ensure the card is in good standing and matches the information supplied. The credit card information is then tokenized via a secure system. Tokenization is the process of capturing the full credit card number and replacing it with a unique identifier (token). Full credit card numbers are never directly stored on Proxibids servers.

At the end of an auction on Proxibid, bidders are able to easily pay some sellers via APN (Auction Payment Network) using the credit card on file. APN is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Proxibid and is a sophisticated yet easy-to-use payment processing solution that meets the specific payment processing needs of auctioneer clients. APN is PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant. PCI-DSS is a set of regulations set forth by the credit card brands to reduce credit card fraud worldwide and is primarily focused on securing credit card numbers. With APN, your information is secure and payments are a breeze.

We hope this information answers your question. As always, if you need additional assistance or have more questions about Proxibid, contact one of our friendly Client Services Professionals as they will be happy to help. Again, thank you for supporting our commitment to excellence. We appreciate your business and look forward to seeing you on Proxibid!
