What is PCI?
PCI compliance is a mandatory annual survey that must be completed by all merchants. Its purpose is to keep merchants accountable for protection of cardholder data and it is required by the card brands. Payment Depot includes the cost of this certificate in each membership as a means of protecting our members. Most companies will charge $100 or more a year to obtain this certificate, but usually do not disclose this fee to customers upfront.
*In all cases, failure to comply with PCI certification will result in monthly non-compliance fees from the card brands.
