How To Avoid Unnecessary Charges On Your Merchant Bill

How To Avoid Unnecessary Charges On Your Merchant Bill

Business growth can inadvertently lead to increased security risk.

In small-to-medium businesses, much of the mitigating risk management will be reliant on the tools available. It is commonly found that third-party payment providers will incur additional charges for security measures.

One of the more controversial charges is for PCI-DSS Compliance, as a card payment security measure ensuring customer data protection through a rigorous set of standards. While it is not standardised by law, it is often found that the responsibility of the card processor is to establish the PCI Compliance fee.

The controversy comes from transparency issues, many businesses simply do not know whether they are compliant or not – which both can incur their own respective charges. It can be a charge that puts off smaller businesses partnering up with a payment provider. Especially since non-compliance can incur a hefty fee if your business is externally investigated in a data leak.

The situation surrounding PCI Compliance can be frustrating.
