POS Card Systems is using PCIRapidComply.com via First Data for merchant PCI Compliance.
There is step-by-step guidance to complete the annual self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ.
There are fewer questions to answer and in some cases the questions are answered for you, depending on how you process your credit cards.
Comprehensive support that ensures your questions get answered: Help Desk (855)532-4891.
There are no new or additional charges to use this website. The Compliance Service Fee charged to you by your merchant provider includes your annual PCI self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ) and quarterly scans, if needed, which are offered in our PCI Rapid Comply solution.
If you choose to use a third-party vendor for PCI DSS compliance services, you will need to contract with and pay that vendor directly. In addition to your alternate vendor’s charges for PCI DSS compliance services, you still will need to pay the Company Service Fee charged to you by your merchant service provider. The Compliance Service Fee is not affected by your choice to use a third-party vendor. You will need to ensure your PCI DSS compliance status is reported to First Data.
*Because this is such an important step for all merchants to obtain for security purposes, it is VERY important that the PCI DSS process is completed. If you fail to become PCI DSS compliant or to report your PCI DSS compliant status with a third-party vendor to First Data, you may also be charged a monthly non-receipt of PCI Validation fee by your Merchant Services provider. If choose to use another assessor other than the preferred PCI Rapid Comply, please forward your “Compliance Certificate” to our office via fax to: 1-502-423-8809. We will forward your information to First Data to update your merchant file.
