Security Policy - Online Payment Transactions
AAH uses the NAB Transact Hosted Payments Page which is a security enhanced online credit card payment system that integrates into a web site via an HTML order form.
The order form collects information about an order and upon submission by a customer; calls the NAB Transact Payment Gateway which in turn enables secure processing of the customer’s credit card for the invoice total (see Figure 1).
All online credit card transactions performed on this site using the NAB system are secured payments.
