PCI Compliance

PCI DSS are a set of standards to help protect businesses and shoppers from data theft and fraud.  It is mandatory for all businesses who accept card payments to comply by getting a PCI certificate.   This applies to all types of card payments: online, by mail, over the phone or using credit card terminals.

Opayo has the highest level (Level 1) of PCI DSS certification. View our PCI DSS certificate. This can reduce your compliance requirements.

No matter what type of payments you're accepting (online, over the phone or using card machines), you'll only need one PCI certificate for your business
