Emailing Credit Card Information

nomoneyinemailNo.  Don’t do it.  Don’t ask for it.  Ever.
 
Somebody we know told us recently that they took credit card transactions via email, either with the credit card information provided in a PDF or just in an email.
 
Our answer:  Do not do this.  It is way past time to not being doing this.
 
 
I know, I know – what about encrypted email?  That’s more secure.  But it’s also a lot more of a pain to use.
 
 
We absolutely do not recommend using email for sending credit card information.
