I cannot begin to imagine how any business could operate without seeing the credit card information entered by their customers. Unless, that is, they only accept PayPal Express as the method of payment and only ship to an exact AVS match. Sometimes honest people accidentally enter incorrect information and it needs to be verified.
It is absurd to think that it is not safe for a merchant to have access to CC info. You hand your CC to the waiter at dinner, who walks away with it, you give your CC info to the business you called on the phone to fix your plumbing, you give your CC to the cashier at Wal-Mart, and you probably give your CC to just about any business who sells a product. Of course, as I said previously, I don't store any CC info on my own computers or network, but I DO have access to the CC info via my Yahoo Merchant Store's orders page using a double password and SSL encryption. As a safety measure, Yahoo deletes the CC info 30 days after the transaction, which gives me plenty of time to call the issuing bank and verify addresses.
f you don't have access to the CC info, how can you avoid chargebacks from unauthorized sales (stolen credit cards)? Case in point, if I was a thief and went to your website to fraudulently purchase a new $600 stereo system and gave you a stolen credit card number and the real Billing address, but wanted it shipped to my home, how would you handle that? Just ship it to me? I would imagine you would be spending a lot of time dealing with chargebacks using that strategy.

I don't ...
If you hack into my computer you will see photos of my family, but you WON'T SEE ANY CC INFO.
disagreement in business practices
Does anyone know of...Apparently, no one knows of a company offering that. Rather than just let the thread go without any responses, people chimed in to provide help and insight as to why there may not be any direct responses to your question. Instead of utter silence, most people would prefer an explanation of why the question wasn't being answered.
Second, if I hack into your computer and get your password to Yahoo Merchant Solution (or whatever processing system you eventually use that does expose the full CC info), I *CAN* see CC info.
I don't store my Yahoo passwords on my computer...Be using my computer
