Core dna makes PCI compliance easy by offering integrated payment gateways that allow merchants to securely transmit credit card data via direct post API methods or with hosted payment forms provided by the payment gateway and integrated with the merchant’s checkout pages.
The Direct Post method allows for information to be sent directly to the payment gateway without sensitive data flowing through or stored on the Core dna application server. We currently have over 20 integrated payment gateways. If we do not have the one you are currently using, we are happy to integrate with it for you.
No, you can add as many users as you want, without additional cost.
The pricing for your subscription is all-inclusive. Your fixed monthly payment covers all the software, the patches and updates to the software. It also covers future releases and upgrades to functionality. Finally, it covers all the cloud infrastructure including network traffic, servers, security and all monitoring.
A non-exhaustive list of things you get with your subscription for free are:
- Access to Core dna Content Delivery Network (CDN) across 45 different locations world-wide,
- Unlimited volume of traffic to CDN,
- Unlimited volume of traffic to Core dna engine,
- Unlimited number of requests through Web Application Firewall (WAF),
- Protection from DDoS attacks,
- Protection from XSS attacks,
- Protection against malicious bots,
- And more
A "Request" is a call to Core dna engine over the Internet which resolves as a dynamic web page or structured data content. For example, AJAX requests, headless queries, and REST API calls.
This excludes calls to static assets that are normally served by the CDN (Content Delivery Network), such as images, fonts, JS files, CSS files, etc.
We don’t like charging overages because we understand there is a fluctuation between your traffic month-to-month. We do take a longer term view of your site traffic and will consult with you before we charge any overages. In many cases we establish a yearly traffic volume and bill any variants plus or minus to cover spikes during the year.
Core dna does not charge transaction fees. In fact, we don’t believe in the concept of charging transaction fees, whether it’s 0.15%, 0.25%, etc. The sales are all yours. You’re only charged the monthly subscription fee that is based on the number of server requests you use.
Standard plans do not require any fixed contracts. There is a simple agreement that covers the use of the software and the content you may produce. For our enterprise clients, we do sign contracts to cover custom setup, extended SLAs and ongoing support.
