How do I become PCI Compliant?

There are only a few steps you need to follow in order to ensure your E-Commerce website is PCI compliant:

1. Purchase a PCI Compliance Scanning and Certification service from a PCI scanning company.

2. Complete a Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) to determine the level of compliance required for your organization. Your PCI scanning company should provide your with access to the questionnaire.

3. Perform a scan of your website using your scanning company. If any issues are found, you should provide a copy of the complete report to your web hosting company for assistance. Total Server Solutions servers are PCI compliant - any issues found in a PCI scan report will be resolved by our support team.

4. When you pass your compliance scan you will be provided a certification document. This should be sent to your merchant bank for their records.
