ZiiP GameStore

Delivered as promised, quickly.

Everything worked as advertised. Received code in minutes.

I don't like making new accounts a lot but that comes with the field. My credit card information was processed securely.

One thing i don't like was that the password for the site was written out in the welcoming e-mail. Convenient, but a potential security leak and easily scanned by Google.

EDIT: I'm thankful for the detailed reply from ZiiP. Their consideration regarding the password contained in the welcome e-mail is heartening. I am aware that the mention of the password in e-mail is no real security concern from the standpoint of Google - although I will note that I believe Google uses e-mail content automatically for targeted advertising. Shouldn't be a problem.

So yeah, ZiiP comes well advised.

Thanks for your review Tim. To respond to your point regarding the password - we'll certainly look to change our initial email so that it does not send the password if our customers consider that more secure. I would not say that this is easily scanned by Google however.

For reference, the password is encrypted securely on our database and not held as clear-text. This can be proved via our lost password function which will generate you a new password and not provide you with your old one.

With regard the handling of your Credit Card details - you will note that we have a Verisign SSL to encrypt any data that is passed from our server to the Worldpay payment server (Your name, address and the value of the transaction etc) - but your actual C/Card details are only entered and processed on the Worldpay site itself. By not storing your C/Card details on our server, it reduced the risk to customers should there ever be a security breach.

Security is extremely important to ZiiP - both from our own point of view to tackle online fraud against us and to protect our customers from being a victim of theft.
