By storing cards with Basis Theory, we have more flexibility in optimizing our payment stack and reacting to our customer’s needs. It’s made compliance a competitive advantage for us.

“I think one of the unique aspects of Basis Theory, and the tech suite they’ve built, is that it’s not a, ‘This is the product, use it like this.’ It’s almost as if we have that data in-house.”
