Shortly after you join Retail Merchant Services, you will receive an email from your acquiring bank (Elavon or Global Payments) regarding your annual PCI Compliance. This will include a brief self-assessment questionnaire, which will guide you step-by-step through becoming compliant and must be completed and submitted online by you.
Important note: It is a requirement that all businesses must renew their PCI DSS certificate on an annual basis in order to remain compliant and avoid non-compliance fees from the acquirer.
You will receive annual reminders from your acquiring bank to renew your PCI DSS certificate, giving you peace of mind and ensuring you avoid non-compliance penalties.
