What is PCI DSS compliance?

PCI compliance, or PCI DSS compliance to give it its full name, stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.

It’s a set of standards that you must comply with if you’re taking card payments to make sure you are doing so safely and securely.

This includes how you store, process and transmit cardholder’s details and it helps protect both you and your customers.

No matter how big or small your business is, you need to meet the relevant standards if you want to accept cards.

If you don’t, you’ll face fees every month and it could put you and your customers at risk of card payment fraud and data breaches.

  • Level 3 – if your business processes 20,000 to 1 million e-commerce transactions each year.
  • Level 4 – if your business processes less than 20,000 e-commerce transactions each year and other merchants processing up to 1 million card transactions a year.
