What is PCI Compliance?
PCI compliance is a requirement to ensure that you meet security standards when accepting payments.
Are there any fees involved with PCI Compliance?
PCI Compliance fees charged for PCI Assure ($14.95/mo) are waived for Wise-Pay merchants. However, it does not absolve your requirement to complete the PCI questionnaire and maintain PCI compliance (I.e. not storing credit card details, using Wise-Pay to process payments etc).
If you do not complete the questionnaire your account will be considered non-compliant and additional fees for non compliant processing may apply.
