Of course we at Newlife use SSL and also use Stripe as our credit card processor.

Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. To accomplish this, we use the best-in-class security tools and practices to maintain a high level of security at Stripe.

As a Limerick based organisation we are really keeping it local as our web developers, AOS Web Services, are based in Limerick, and also Stripe was famously founded by two Limerick brothers, Patrick and John Collison.
