Yes, PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry-Data Security Standard) is a requirement for all merchants accepting credit cards, regardless of your payment processor or type of business. We have made this process as easy as possible for our Members by providing a website where you can quickly validate your compliance. Upon merchant account activation, you will receive an email notifying you of your username and password. The website will walk you through some basic questions about your business to determine your PCI level. If scans are required, you can easily schedule them from the website. If you need any assistance, please contact us and we will be happy to walk you through the process.
