What it’s all about.

PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) is a set of comprehensive requirements all businesses that handle credit and debit payments must comply with, regardless of the size or number of transactions they process. The requirements for maintaining PCI compliance include completion of an annual PCI self-assessment questionnaire and a quarterly network scan.

Grow customer trust.

We store customer credit and debit card information securely. By accepting PayPal, you’re telling your customers you take their data security seriously.

Already compliant.

Our most popular products, like Website Payments Standard, Paypal Checkout and Invoicing, are already PCI compliant. And, because we handle your customers’ card information for you, you can forget about the time, cost and headache of maintaining PCI compliance.

When you need to be PCI compliant.

If you manage transactions yourself and touch, store or transmit credit card details, you’ll need to obtain PCI compliance certification for your business. For many of our products, we handle this for you, but if you have one of our more customisable solutions, like Payflow Pro, you’re taking card information over the phone or by fax for Virtual Terminal payments, or you accept non-PayPal payments, you’ll need to be compliant. For help you can contact a certified security expert like Trustwave.
