What You Need to Know About PCI and Your Ecommerce Merchant Account
Here at Credit Card Processing Specialists, we make sure that you have the most secure, up-to-date solutions to remain PCI compliant. So what’s so important about PCI?
In the last several years, more customers have purchased products and services online with credit cards. As the popularity of e-commerce has increased, so have security threats. It has become more important now more than ever to make sure that all of your shoppers’ information is kept secure and properly stored to prevent the theft of sensitive information.
In fact, the PCI recently reported that they expect nearly 43 million cyberattacks in the coming year. Thankfully, there are layers of security that can protect both the consumer and the business. Whether a business processes payments in-store or online, PCI compliance is vital to protect payment information. This is because hackers and scammers do target information to either make unauthorized purchases or to sell the information for fraudulent or unethical marketing purposes.
Ensuring that you are PCI compliant is the definitive step towards ensuring that all of the communications between your customers and you are properly secure.
Requirements of PCI DSS
Every business that offers ecommerce credit card processing should take part in the PCI DSS. It is a process that consists of 12 individual requirements that must be passed. These requirements apply to any business that handles, accepts, stores, and/or transmits credit card information. This PCI compliance must be certified annually to ensure security measures are up-to-date.
To get started and make sure your e-commerce business is PCI compliant, fill out the form to the right of the page, or give our team a call at: 866-470-1705.
We would be happy to assist you in securing the proper solutions for your e-commerce business.

Need Access to Capital? A Merchant Cash Advance May be the Solution
As the owner of an e-commerce business, you may need additional cash flow or have a need for capital but face difficulties securing what you need. Because of the ripples of the financial crisis several years ago, there are now more requirements than ever before to secure a loan for today’s small business.
That’s where the merchant cash advance option can help. Our team at Credit Card Processing Specialists can help you determine if a merchant cash advance is the best choice for your needs.
With a merchant cash advance, you don’t have to jump through all of the hoops as you would with a traditional loan – you can also get the cash you need much faster. The difference is that when it is time for repayment, a percentage of each payment you process will go to pay the merchant cash advance off.
You can avoid the debt burden of a traditional loan’s requirements because instead of paying back a lump minimum due each month, you’ll only pay back the agreed upon percentage from each future sale you process.
Some of the benefits of a merchant cash advance include:
- Faster access to capital when needed
- Easier to pay off over time via a percent of each future sale processed
- Easier acceptance – based on previous account statements and business standing
- Great for startups, large business, and the small business needs
To expedite the process, it will benefit you to have four consecutive months’ worth of your ecommerce credit card processing statements, and three previous bank account statements available for review.
Our team at Credit Card Processing Specialists is here to help you determine if a merchant cash advance is a smart move – give us a call today!
