Effective July 1st, 2023, Paya will be adding a PCI Non-Compliance Assessment Fee of $0.015 (15bps) based on your previous month's processing volume, in addition to the monthly PCI Non-Compliance Fee. This fee is only applicable to merchants who are deemed PCI Non-Compliant. To avoid this fee, please complete your PCI Certification found at www.pciapply.com/paya.
All merchants accepting card payments are required by the Card Brands (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover) to maintain compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). Merchants must ensure they have safeguarded all customer account data by achieving and maintaining their PCI Certification.
To assist you with achieving PCI-DSS Compliance quickly and easily, we have implemented an easy-to-use solution to make becoming compliant less complicated! Compliance with PCI-DSS shows you're taking the necessary steps to protect your customer's information, and they can trust you with their sensitive payment card data. The resources we offer in our PCI Compliance program will help you protect your business and maintain compliance annually.

You will need the following pieces of information available when you log in:
- Your full 16-digit Merchant ID Number
- The last 4-digits of your Tax ID or SSN

Please note, PCI Compliance is mandatory. If you have not completed your PCI Compliance within 60 days of your approval date or fail to maintain your compliance by completing your annual certification or your quarterly scans (if required), you will be billed monthly non-compliance fees until you restore your account to full compliance.
Should you have any questions while completing this process, we offer Customer Support at 1-888-329-3171 or you can email your questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have already completed your PCI Certification requirements for this year, you can email a copy of your certificate to email@example.com.
