Being PCI compliant – meaning that you comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard established by Visa, MasterCard and Discover – can be one of the biggest hurdles (and headaches) in our industry. The standard applies to anyone who accepts credit or debit card transactions and requires for you to successfully complete and file an annual assessment of your ability to safeguard card data.
Most processors take a hands-off approach to the whole assessment process, sending you to a third party provider who then sends you to a website for “assistance”. This can typically cost anywhere from $119 to $199 a year and another $20 a month if you don’t comply – not so at MTG.
Our licensed PCI compliance technology enables us to walk you through the whole process and help you meet all of the related filing requirements. More importantly, it enables us to do so at no charge! That’s right, someone from MTG will personally help you complete the assessment, make sure it’s appropriately filed and it won’t cost you anything but a little time.
PCI compliance doesn’t have to be difficult, especially if you are dealing with a processing company that is more interested in compliance than collecting non-compliance fees. And that couldn’t be more evident at MTG where we just enjoy being different.
