    What is the difference between the Annual Compliance Fee and the PCI-DSS Fee?

    PCI-DSS June ($75.00)- PCI DSS is an industry standard this fee covers the annual SAQ and quarterly scan with Aperia. Because all of our merchants are impacted Aperia has reduced this cost to our merchants from $200.00 to $75.00. This also includes $50,000 breach coverage for each merchant account. Merchants must complete the certification every 12 months. This SAQ/scan will help you to work towards a PCI DSS secure processing environment.

     

    Annual Compliance November ($99.80)- The Annual Compliance Fee is a fee that helps defray the various costs associated with maintaining your account. There are various costs involved to support your merchant account which occur behind the scenes, such as maximizing your account protection to ensure we are meeting the latest PCI compliance requirements, additional efforts on the tax management process, FANF management as well as additional resources to minimize risk and fraud to help protect you and your business.
