PCI compliance for ecommerce

What's this blog post about?

On February 7th, Vercel introduced an article on achieving PCI compliance in ecommerce through leveraging iframes for payment processing. Iframes are utilized to create a secure conduit between end-users and payment providers while maintaining resilient workloads. By using iframes, customers' payment card information is isolated from Vercel’s environment, directly transmitted to the payment processor, and reduces the scope of PCI DSS compliance that needs to be managed. To implement this solution, users are required to select a payment service provider, embed the provider’s iframe into their application's payment page with appropriate sandbox attributes, and maintain diligence in security practices. The PCI Security Standards Council provides a guide on best practices for securing ecommerce.
