Once a distant threat, something that merchants would not experience until there was a breach, non-PCI compliant fees now become a reality. A growing number of merchant service providers add those fees to merchants’ monthly bills before any cardholder data was compromised.
The PA-DSS Deadline has Passed…Now What?
So, July 1, 2010 passed. Any company that accepts gift, debit, or credit cards on their web site now must use PA-DSS compliant payment applications (a shopping cart is one such application) or face non-compliance fines, warnings from their merchant account provider, and even a possibility to lose the ability to process card payments if the card data is compromised.
See what’s the cost of becoming compliant is now and what options you have to achieve compliance even if your budget is limited.
