In a world of security breaches, the world’s largest credit card company has added tokenization to keep their cardholders safe with advanced security technology. If you’re worried about information being shared with third party marketers, Visa states they will never share this sensitive information and protects your information through industry standard encryption with multilayer authentication.  Payment methods authorized are Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express.

“Our highest priority is the security of our customers’ transactions, whether they are paying online or in a physical store,” said Tom Kunz, senior vice president of PNC Digital. ““That’s why we are working with Visa to integrate their innovative security technology, Visa Token Service, into Visa Checkout on our site. This technology offers greater security, and because it can also be used with EMV chip cards, consumers can benefit from this added security feature, whether paying online, in-app or in stores around the world and across the Web.” If you’re interested in creating an account, go to the Visa Checkout enrollment page.
