Best foot forward as tReds chooses Secure Trading payment gateway

Fashion footwear retailer tReds has selected leading independent payment management company, Secure Trading, to deliver its online payment gateway as it looks to expand its offering.

tReds, which has over 30 stores throughout the UK, sells branded footwear and clothing for women, men and children. The company has recently taken its offering online where Secure Trading is providing a full range of payment management services, comprising a resilient payment 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.

As Secure Trading is 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 Secure Trading to provide currency conversion solutions, 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. 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.

“Unlike many independent ecommerce platforms in the UK, tReds is ambitiously setting its sights on the global market, and we are looking forward to supporting the company every step of the way and facilitating its growth overseas.”
