Star Command Galaxies and buying the game

Post by redwarp » Fri Dec 19, 2014 11:24 am

Hi ! I'm really looking forward to playing this game, I love Star Command (spend a lot of time playing it, never quite finished it though)

On your new website, star command galaxies, we can buy the alpha ! And that's cool.

Just one problem though: the apparent lack of https, that makes me refrain from actually giving my credit card information.
Do you have any plan to make it feel more safe? (I'm aware that the payment view loaded in a iframe is https, but I still don't feel so good about it)

They do not do the site through themselves I believe. It is through a third party "sendowl" service.

You can always wait for the steam release if you don't feel secure. I'll ask them about the https for the store site though.

The iframe of sendowl is secure. You can check it if you have AdBlock, just by right clicking on it and selecting "Block Frame" - then you will link that uses SSL. To ensure in it's quality, you can use SSL Labs' SSL Test: ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=transactions.sendowl.com&hideResults=on&latest

Since Sendowl use Credit Cards for payment, they have no other way, but to follow PCI DSS, otherwise they would have to pay a really serious fines for not meeting required standards. Don't worry, a grade of SSL quality for sendowl's servers is A. So you can pay with your credit card, without worrying about sendowl being unsafe :)
