This procedure verifies merchant credit card handling processes and tests merchant Internet systems to determine compliance with Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards.
Is It Required?
This verification is required for clients who offer ecommerce online. Even if you do not store the credit card details, the issuing banks have required that hosts pass PCI compiance tests.
Proof of PCI compliance is required of all merchants who accept payments. Fines and deadlines for non-compliance vary depending on the Acquiring Bank and credit card companies you accept.
