High-Risk & Adult Account PCI Compliance

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.

We have partnered with ControlScan to manage our PCI Program for adult account acquiring and the connected (sponsor) banks. ControlScan is an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) by the PCI Council and a leading provider of PCI security solutions for merchants. Their easy-to-use tools and detailed, personal level of support make achieving compliance less complicated. 

About the program:

The ControlScan program helps you remain secure and PCI compliant. Use of the program is mandatory for all merchants and will be provided to you free of charge. Note: comparable PCI compliance programs are normally quite costly (over £200 per year). Only in case you are not PCI-compliant, a non-compliance fee of a minimum of £50 - (or equivalent amount in your local currency) will be charged for each month that you are non-compliant. Please note that this non-compliance fee will not replace any fees or fines that may be charged by card schemes in case of security issues.

How it works:

All merchants are required to provide periodical proof of their PCI-compliance, via the ControlScan portal (login details will be provided to you)

  • Complete a Self-Assessment Questionnaire (“SAQ”): every year.

  • Perform security scans: every three months.

  • The ControlScan PCI service will automatically remind you to complete the periodical proof and conveniently provide the questionnaire and security scans to you via the ControlScan platform.

Are you already using another PCI vendor?
No problem! You can continue to use your current PCI vendor, but you will need to upload your SAQ and scanning results to the ControlScan portal.

Failure to be PCI compliant may increase chances of credit card fraud or security breaches. The Payvision PCI compliance program is offered in close cooperation with ControlScan and helps merchants operate in a safe and PCI compliant manner.
