Simpatico Foods uses Square as our online payment processor to process customer payments. With Square , our customers are able to use almost any kind of credit or debit card: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and Diners Club. Credit or debit card information entered by customers never enter Simpatico Foods servers; encrypted card data only resides on Square servers. Square encrypts payment data as soon as you swipe or manually enter in the numbers during the sale. Payment encryption makes it harder for anyone to intercept payment data as it is being processed or stored.

Square has been audited by an independent PCI Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) and is certified as a PCI Level 1 Service Provider.
