PCI compliance

To securely process, transmit, and store credit card information, Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance is required. Rules for PCI compliance are established by the Payment Card Security Council.

For more information about PCI compliance, see https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/.

WellnessLiving works with other organizations to help ensure that your business is PCI compliant. A PCI fee will be charged to you for this assistance. For businesses processing with Paragon (formerly Direct Connect) and Argus, the annual fee is $200 and charged in June. For more information about fees, see Merchant Processing Fees.

Your business must also comply with specific requirements set by your merchant processor. A PCI compliance form will be sent to you as a part of the merchant processing setup process with WellnessLiving. If you need any assistance filling out or submitting this form, please contact the phone number found on the form. If you have difficulty locating this phone number, contact your WellnessLiving account representative. After this form is completed and you have passed any other required assessments, such as a computer scan, your business is fully validated as PCI compliant.

If your PCI compliance form has not been completed or your application has not been approved, you will not be PCI compliant. Businesses that are not PCI compliant will incur related penalties and their data will be at risk. If your data is breached or suspected of being breached, you may be fined up to $50,000.
