PCI Compliance for Small Merchants

Small businesses are the heart and soul of the U.S. economy. From local mom and pop shops to innovative web start ups, we rely on these merchants daily for goods and services. In the payments world, small businesses are referred to as Level 4 merchants, those processing less than 20,000 e-commerce transactions annually and up to 1 million transactions annually. There are more than 6 million Level 4 merchants in the U.S.

PCI compliance is a vital component of merchants overall, ongoing security program. However, Level 4 merchants have not always been well educated or encouraged by their acquiring bank to become compliant.

Deciphering Debit Card Processing

It is no secret that debit cards are a popular method for paying for goods and services. Customers use their bank ATM cards and check cards to pay for everything from a pack of gum at a gas station to monthly utility bills.

Debit card payments may soon take over credit card transactions! There were 507 million total debit cards in circulation in U.S. at the end of 2009. Debit payment transactions rose 17.1% to 6.38 billion, according to Visa and MasterCard.

A Merchant’s Best Friend: E2EE & Tokenization

It’s the start of a New Year and, naturally, businesses begin prioritizing projects.  “What can we accomplish this year? What projects can we take on that will deliver the most bang for the buck.” Each division jockeys for position and vies for scarce time and resources.

The single most important business decision merchants can make this year centers on data security. All the hard work your teams put in every day is rendered useless in the event of a data breach. Progress stops and all attention shifts toward survival.
