At Circular-In, we understand the importance of secure, easy, and reliable payments for our users. That's why we have partnered with Stripe, a leading online payment processing platform, to handle all financial transactions on our site.

Stripe is a globally trusted platform, renowned for its robust security measures and user-friendly interface. When you make a payment on Circular-In, whether it's for running an ad or subscribing to a premium feature, the transaction is processed entirely through Stripe.

Here's how it works:

Choosing your Service: Once you've chosen the service you wish to purchase on Circular-In, you will be directed to the payment page. This could be to pay for an ad campaign, a marketplace listing, or any of the many services we offer.

Secure Payment Gateway: On the payment page, you'll enter your card details. This is where Stripe comes in. The information is sent directly to Stripe via their secure API. Circular-In does not store any sensitive card information on our servers, ensuring your data remains private and secure.

Payment Processing: Stripe then processes your payment. It works with the card networks and your bank to verify the details and ensure the funds are available. If everything checks out, the payment is approved.

Confirmation: Once the transaction is successful, Stripe sends a confirmation to Circular-In, and we update your account accordingly. You'll receive a confirmation email with the details of your purchase.

Ongoing Security: Stripe continues to monitor your transaction even after it's been processed to detect any suspicious activity. It uses machine learning algorithms and 24/7 fraud monitoring to protect your data from any potential threats.

Stripe accepts a variety of payment methods, including all major debit and credit cards, so you can choose the most convenient option for you. It complies with the strictest industry standards for data security and is certified as a PCI Level 1 Service Provider, the highest level of certification available.

With Stripe handling our payments, you can focus on making the most of the services Circular-In offers, confident in the knowledge that your transactions are safe and secure.
