I’ve talked a lot about PCI Compliance on this blog, primarily because it impacts all of our customers’ monthly processing statements.
Merchants are charged an extra monthly fee for every month they do not complete their PCI Compliance requirements for keeping customer data secure.
Once a year, your business is required to complete a questionnaire from your processor. If you don’t complete the questionnaire or you are not keeping sensitive payment information PCI compliant, you’ll receive a monthly non-compliance fee until you complete the questionnaire.
If you want to read more about the questionnaire and how to answer the questions, you can read more here. However, there’s are pretty simple rules to follow to become PCI compliant.
