PCI Compliance

What is PCI DSS Compliance?

PCI DSS or Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) are standards for security policies, technologies and ongoing processes. This ensures that merchants and financial institutions protect their payment systems from breaches and theft of cardholder data.

Any organisation involved with the processing, handling and storage of card data must comply with these standards.

Wpay is certified for PCI DSS as a Level 1 Service Provider which is the highest standard set by the payment card industry to ensure that credit card data is; processed, stored and transmitted in a secure environment.

How to ensure PCI DSS Compliance

PCI DSS compliance is a shared responsibility between your business and Wpay so whenever accepting and transmitting card information it is important to ensure that this is done in alignment with the PCI standards.

By using one of our integration options such as our Frames and SDK's it ensures you are able to accept payments without ever handling sensitive card data.
