PCI Compliance for Small Merchants

Small businesses are the heart and soul of the U.S. economy. From local mom and pop shops to innovative web start ups, we rely on these merchants daily for goods and services. In the payments world, small businesses are referred to as Level 4 merchants, those processing less than 20,000 e-commerce transactions annually and up to 1 million transactions annually. There are more than 6 million Level 4 merchants in the U.S.

PCI compliance is a vital component of merchants overall, ongoing security program. However, Level 4 merchants have not always been well educated or encouraged by their acquiring bank to become compliant.

Non-Profit’s Unique Payment Processing Needs

At the NACHA Mega Meeting, September 29-30, we listened to an esteemed trio of panelists, American Red Cross, Faith Direct, and Star of Hope; discuss nonprofit payment processing. During an economic period where overall charitable contributions are down, payment simplification is paramount for non-profits.  Americans gave more than $307 billion in charitable donations despite the economic conditions in 2009. However, total giving, when adjusted for inflation, was down 3.6 percent. This was the steepest decline since the Giving USA annual reports began in 1956.
