Shoe retailer puts best foot forward with selection of online payment management technology and services to support and secure its e-commerce business

Fashion footwear retailer tReds has selected independent payment management company, Secure Trading, as its online payment management advisor as it looks to expand its offering.
 
Selling branded footwear and clothing for women, men and children, tReds has over 30 stores throughout the UK. The company has recently taken its offering online where Secure Trading is providing a full range of payment management services.

The tReds services comprise a resilient gateway to efficiently process card payments of all types, cyber security and anti-fraud measures to ensure customer details are safeguarded at all times, and acquiring services to advise tReds on its choice of acquiring banks.

Security, compliance and optimisation 
 
As Secure Trading is Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Level 1 compliant and stores all sensitive data, it also removes the need for tReds to handle customer card details, adding an additional layer of security. 

There is also scope for the payment services provider to offer currency conversion facilities, priming the firm for overseas expansion.
 
Dan House, web supervisor for tReds, said: "As an online fashion retailer it's crucial that we make buying goods as quick and easy as possible for our customers. 

Supporting future overseas expansion

"Secure Trading was the obvious choice for us and, on top of providing a wide range of payment methods for shoppers, it can also support us in future international expansion.”
 
Michael Lane, channel and product director at Secure Trading said: “tReds has great potential for growth and it’s fantastic to see the company bringing its offering online.
 
"In the modern ecommerce arena it's essential that businesses take a holistic approach to payments. It's not enough to look at payment processing in isolation – it's vital that security, compliance, optimisation and other elements are considered in tandem.”
