SECURE PAY – BENDIGO BANK
Bendigo Visitor Information Secure Payment Gateway is provided using The Bendigo Bank Group Website Payment Gateway.
The Bendigo Bank Group Website Payment Gateway uses high security levels, which are standard for Internet banking and large scale e-commerce sites and involve the use of 128-bit encryption. You can check the security level of a web page by clicking on your Internet browser's padlock or key icon. Encryption is the standard way of protecting your information as it is transmitted between you and Bendigo Bank. This involves converting the information into an unreadable code using a "key" (and also decoding it using this "key"). The longer the key, the more difficult it is for others to break the encrypted codes.
