PCI Compliance

What It Is

Visa and MasterCard require that all merchants processing credit cards, including Market America distributors, be compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS or simply PCI). iTransact and iPayment have collaborated on a solution by which you can demonstrate your PCI compliance as simply and inexpensively as possible.

What It Costs

Your iTransact monthly fee of $14.95 includes the cost of ongoing certification of your PCI compliance. Note that this is far less than most merchants pay; PCI compliance certification typically costs $129.00-$200.00 per year above and beyond the monthly merchant account fees.

How to Certify

If you have an active iTransact merchant account for your Market America business, you can begin your PCI certification at any time. To begin, please follow the instructions here:
