What is The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard?
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a global standard that applies to all parties involved in payment card processing—including merchants, processors, acquirers, card issuers, and service providers. At 123Send, we have incorporated the PCI DSS requirements not only into our solutions but also into our wider security framework and business as usual processes.
Do merchants have to be PCI DSS compliant as well?
Yes, if you are a merchant, PCI DSS applies to you as well, even if you have subcontracted all of your PCI DSS activities to a third party. For more information about PCI DSS compliance go to the PCI Standards Council website.
