From creating more engaging customer experiences to leveraging new revenue sources, taking your Shopify apps to new heights can unlock tremendous growth.
But if you’re not a data security expert and have no clue what the features above mean, you’ll want to read on: Here’s everything you need to know about maintaining your ecommerce site’s security.
But first, some common ecommerce security issues that every merchant, entrepreneur, and marketer should know:
Credit card data. Is the server that manages every transaction fully secure and PCI compliant? Remember: Payment data breaches not only destroy a customer’s trust in your brand, but they also open you up to legal action.
Customer data. How do you protect and secure your customer database?
Fraud protection. Does your ecommerce store detect fraudulent orders?
SSL. Is all your site content served over SSL? It prevents malicious third-party scripts from wreaking havoc on your website and shoppers’ browsers.
Admin security. How easy is it for a malicious third party to access your store’s admin account?
Now you know what to pay attention to, you’ll want to ramp up your store’s security by:
✅ Activating your SSL certificate, so all traffic is routed through HTTPS, not HTTP. Although Shopify enables it by default, it’s worth double-checking — here’s how.
✅ Locking and password-protecting your wholesale site from regular shoppers.
✅ Training your team against phishing scams.
