PCI DSS are a set of standards to help protect businesses and shoppers from data theft and fraud. It is mandatory for all businesses to accept card payments to comply by getting a PCI certificate. This applies to all types of card payments: online, by mail, over the phone or via card machines.
There are 4 levels of PCI DSS compliance. They are based on the number of transactions processed by a business annually and on the way they are processed.
Gate2Payments ApS has the highest level (Level 1) of PCI DSS certification.
Becoming PCI DSS compliant you should speak to your merchant acquiring bank so they can refer you to their preferred Quality Security Assessor (QSA).
No matter what type of payments you’re accepting (online, over the phone or using card machines), you’ll only need one PCI certificate for your business
