Urgent Reminder! PCCharge Ends Support 10/1/2015 - How to Stay PCI Compliant

Sep 11, 2015 5:04:00 PM


PCCharge has been providing a much needed service for ERP End-Users throughout the greater part of a decade, offering an on-site integrated credit card processing solution. The problem however is their solution is extremely vulnerable to hackers. The credit card data is not tokenized or stored in a vault and once a hacker gets access to the local server. Well at that point all the data is readily available for the taking.

We all know criminals have become increasingly clever at taking advantage of security gaps. They dedicate their existence to uncovering ways to intrude into systems, gain access to sensitive data and remove it undetected so that they can commit fraud.

The good news is companies that follow good security practices along with the PCI standard have the opportunity to obstruct these criminals every step of the way. The purpose of PCI-DSS Compliance is to ensure the security of the cardholder data and help prevent fraud, credit card hacking and many other security issues. It is enforced by all of the major credit card companies and failure to comply can result in tremendous monetary fines to the merchant. Tokenizing card data and storing it in a vault is the most effective industry standard in existence and a necessary tool to protect cardholder data against criminal attacks.

APS ensures that all of our merchants are PCI-DSS Compliant and understand the importance of staying compliant.

Every new and existing merchant will have access to our FREE PCI Compliance Service as well as PCI-DSS scans of their credit card processing system. We proudly feature the APS Vault, which securely stores all of your credit card information and can be used in conjunction with our recurring billing module. APS offers our merchants a Merchant Support Department dedicated to assisting you in becoming PCI Compliant and staying PCI Compliant at no extra charge.

Our gateway, APSPAYS, has all of the same features that PCCharge provided, but hosts the credit card data inside of our Vault, and the credit card data is tokenized, ensuring no credit card information is available to hackers. APSPAYS is directly integrated with Sage 100 (MAS90/MAS200), QuickBooks Pro, Premier, & Enterprise, SAP Business One, Microsoft Dynamics NAV / GP, Acumatica, and many other software options.

APSPAYS has many additional benefits that PCCharge did not provide, like Level III Processing (B2B Transaction Discounts), Enhanced Reporting Tools, and iPad Point of Sale integration.
