PCI (Payment Card Industry) Compliance Explained.
What is it?
PCI is the standard that all businesses who process payment card transactions (Visa, Mastercard etc) must adhere to – IT IS MANDATORY.
What to learn more, watch this video.
What do I have to Do?
If you process less than 20,000 card transactions a year then you will have to:
- 1. Complete a self-assessment questionnaire and
- 2. Have an annual network scan – (some providers insist on quarterly scans)
Where do I find the questionnaire?
On the PCI-DSS website at https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/security_standards/pci_dss.shtml or look at your Merchant Account providers website, but be warned, it can be difficult to both find and understand (we've been through this process ourselves!)

How else can JSweb help?
Once you have undertaken your first scan then you will be able to see any errors or vulnerabilities that it has detected. We have found that many of these are due to simple changes that you have made to your Zencart. Send us your scan results via http://support.jsweb.co.uk (Submit New Ticket > PCI Compliance) and we will give you a free quotation for the work that needs to be undertaken to rectify the problem.
Is Zencart PCI compliant?
Version 1.5.1 is compliant and we have had it tested by Trust Guard to ensure this, however earlier versions may not be and any changes you make could inadvertently render non compliance. Again if you need support, please contact the JSWeb team via http://support.jsweb.co.uk
