Before choosing a payment gateway, you should be aware of PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) compliance.

It’s the responsibility of payment gateway service provider to handle the transaction securely. While doing transactions with credit cards, customers’ sensitive information needs to be protected from cyber-thieves.

So payment gateways need to meet the security requirements of card companies. That is why every payment gateway has to be PCI compliant.

“The security benefits associated with maintaining PCI compliance are vital to the long-term success of all merchants who process card payments. This includes continual identification of threats and vulnerabilities that could potentially impact the organization. Most organizations never fully recover from data breaches because the loss is greater than the data itself.”

  • Though most of the good payment gateways accept international payments, you need to verify that.
