Standard Account PCI Compliance
Becoming PCI compliant with our Standard Account is FREE.

Sysnet Global Solutions

PCI Compliance is the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, a world-wide benchmark mandated by the card schemes for the protection of cardholder identity and transaction information. If you are not covered and do not comply with the standard you could face substantial fines imposed by card schemes or result in permanently being barred from using card acceptance programmes, should a security breach occur.

Now the good news...

We want to provide our customers with the best opportunity to become compliant and ensure that your customer’s data is protected and secure. Therefore we have teamed up with Sysnet, a PCI Security Standards Council–accredited Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) and ASV.

This service is FREE with our standard account. However this is optional as you can opt to receive this service from an external provider and send us a copy of your certificate once compliant. For a list of providers please click here.


Isn't this just another way of getting more money out of businesses?

Not at all. This is for the benefit of all concerned. 80% of all online fraud occurs using stolen or missused payment details. No matter where you go to become PCI compliant you will have to pay a fee.

What if I don't want to become PCI compliant?

All customers have 90 days to become compliant, however failure to comply will attract a non-compliance fee of £40 per month (or equivalent) for each MID a merchant operates that is not PCI DSS compliant. If a merchant transitions from being compliant to being non-compliant; this fee will not be charged for the first 90 days of non-compliance.

Is Web Merchant Services compliant?

Yes, we have been compliant since 2008 (two years before it became compulsory).

About the PCI Security Standards Council

The PCI Security Standards Council is an open global forum, launched in 2006, that is responsible for the development, management, education, and awareness of the PCI Security Standards, including: the Data Security Standard (DSS), Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS), and Pin-Entry Device (PED) Requirements.

All of the five founding members have agreed to incorporate the PCI DSS as the technical requirements of each of their data security compliance programs. Each founding member also recognizes the QSAs and ASVs certified by the PCI Security Standards Council as being qualified to validate compliance to the PCI DSS.
