If you’ve been processing credit cards for a while, you’re probably familiar with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (or PCI DSS for short).

The PCI DSS ensures that every business protects their customers’ payment information from theft and fraud. Merchants who do not complete a Self-Assessment Questionnaire, or SAQ, to certify compliance with the standards face a non-compliance fee ranging from $20 to $50 per month, depending on the size of their business.

Sonder Payments now allows its members to complete PCI validations totally free of charge rather than requiring third-party certification.

If you’d like to avoid a PCI non-compliance fee on your monthly statement, contact support@sonderpayments.com.
