Why is PCI Compliance Important?

If you’re in the online retail business, it’s essential that you process transactions through a PCI compliant payment gateway. Allied Wallet is proud to offer payment processing solutions featuring state-of-the-art security and PCI-DSS Level 1 compliance. We’re committed to protecting each of our merchants and every one of their customers.

Preventing Fraud with a Secure Payment GatewayThe Risks of Online Transactions

Since 2005, more than 340 million records have been compromised in online security attacks. What’s more, 80% of those security attacks have targeted small merchants, who are ultimately the most vulnerable to the risks that online fraud can pose.

There are potentially severe penalties for merchants whose customers’ data is stolen. If you’re concerned about protecting your customers from security attacks—and every online retailer should be—Allied Wallet is here to be your ally in the fight against fraud with our PCI compliant payment gateway.

As mentioned previously, if a non-compliant merchant has a security breach, and the sensitive data belonging to their customers is stolen, the penalties imposed can be quite harsh. These penalties include fines up to $500,000 per incident, plus having your right to accept credit cards revoked. Either of these penalties could potentially put you out of business, especially if you are just getting on your feet and making a name for yourself. When a merchant experiences a security breach due to failure to maintain appropriate compliance, the results can go well beyond frustrating. It can mean the collapse of the business. That’s why it’s important to safeguard yourself—or ally with someone who will.
