Merchants processing direct credit card transactions must be compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was developed to encourage and enhance cardholder data security and facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures globally. PCI DSS provides a baseline of technical and operational requirements designed to protect account data. PCI DSS requirements apply to all entities involved in payment card processing - including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers - where account data (cardholder data and/or sensitive authentication data) is stored, processed or transmitted. While using hosted payment solutions where the payment environment is being outsourced can simplify compliance requirements, certain PCI DSS requirements are still applicable to these merchants and are additionally responsible for ensuring that the account data is protected by the third party. You can find information on the PCI Data Security Standard on the PCI Security Standards Council website. The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) website offers a number of additional resources to assist merchants with their PCI DSS assessments and validations:
PayPal (Payflow) is in compliance with PCI DSS and can be recognized by the card brands as compliant with the PCI DSS standard. PayPal is fully certified as a Level 1 card processor.
