What is Avangate?

Avangate is an e-commerce company that iolo technologies uses to sell System Mechanic and other iolo products online. The company was founded in 2006 in Amsterdam and has since become a leading provider of secure digital “shopping cart” and payment processing services for many software companies worldwide.

As iolo’s secure online checkout provider, Avangate facilitates iolo software transactions using a safe, industry standardized protocol.

Why iolo uses Avangate's services

iolo switched from using an in-house digital commerce solution to Avangate’s services because the latter provides iolo customers with a faster, easier checkout experience as well as increased security over private data.

Avangate complies with current online security standards. Your private data is 100% secure within Avangate’s PCI and Better Business Bureau certified, DSS compliant environment.

How to identify iolo software purchases through Avangate

If you see the company name Avangate on your credit card or banking statement, you may have recently purchased or renewed an iolo product. You may also receive an email receipt from Avangate that details the purchase.

Many software merchants use Avangate’s e-commerce platform, so please look for “AVANGATE*IOLO.COM” on your credit card or banking statement to verify its association with System Mechanic or other iolo products.

To be clear, System Mechanic is not an Avangate product. The software is created and sold by iolo technologies, LLC, through the online shopping cart services provided by Avangate, with whom iolo is officially partnered solely for this purpose.
