Questions and answers

What is PCI Compliance and do I have to worry about it?

Payment Card Industry (PCI) security standards are minimum requirements for protecting your customers' payment card information. Adopted by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card, and JCB, PCI compliance is required for all merchants that store, transmit, or process payment card information. Traditionally this creates a lot of work for businesses looking to sell online. PayPal Website Payments Standard takes your customers to a PayPal hosted checkout page to relieve you of the burden of protecting their financial data. It also works with the most popular shopping carts, including Go Daddy, ASecureCart, and Ennyware.
