PCI Certified & Compliant Web Shopping Cart

PCI Certified 100% PCI Compliant

When everyone feels safe shopping online, the whole e-commerce industry wins. The establishment of PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) has taken Internet security to a whole new level by providing strict industry regulations for merchants and merchant account providers to follow. Today, all merchants accepting credit cards online must be PCI compliant.

AbleCommerce™ values the security of our clients and their customers and, because of that commitment, we were one of the first shopping cart software providers to become PCI/CISP certified. We maintain PCI compliance with ongoing validation and by implementing upgrades and enhancements as needed. And that’s one of the biggest advantages of choosing AbleCommerce™. With other shopping cart solutions that require hosting (for example, software which you must download, install, backup, and update on a regular basis), you must go through the time-consuming process of becoming PCI compliant on your own. Why go through unnecessary (and often costly) steps or risk fines and security breaches when there is an all-in-one, PCI compliant e-commerce solution?

What is PCI DSS and Where Did it Come From? The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council was established in 2006 to set strict, industry-wide data security standards and regulations, or PCI DSS. The standards were developed by the founding brands of the organization, including American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc. International. The PCI DSS includes 12 requirements in six areas: Build and maintain a secure network Protect cardholder data Maintain a vulnerability management program Implement strong access control measures Regularly monitor and test networks Maintain an information security policy

You’d be surprised how many shopping cart solutions are not compliant with those above areas. Creating a safe and secure platform that meets all these requirements is an incredible task. It’s imperative you choose a solution that will protect you and your customers.

What are the Risks of Not Being PCI Compliant? Processing credit cards is the lifeblood of e-commerce.Taking shortcuts or trying to cut costs is not worth losing your business over, that’s for sure. Fines and penalties for non-compliance or security breaches are defined individually by each of the payment card industry brands, but could run anywhere from $10,000 to $500,000 and worse, lose your ability to even process online transactions. The bad publicity that comes from those security leaks can also be detrimental to your business’ good name.

So, when you trust AbleCommerce™, your customers will trust you.
