PCI Certifications & Compliance
PCI Compliance otherwise referred to as Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a propriety information security standard for organisations working with major branded credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express and JCB.
The PCI Compliance Standard is mandated by the card brands and administered by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council.
The PCI Compliance Standard was created to increase controls around cardholder data and reduce credit card fraud. Validation of compliance is performed annually by either external Qualified Security Assessors (QSA) or by an internal department focused on Internal Security Assessment (ISA) that creates a Report on Compliance (ROC) for organisations handling large volumes of transactions.
Alternatively, a Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) can be completed by companies handling smaller volumes.

Payment Gateways are an e-commerce application provided by merchant services to authorize and process credit card payments in a PCI compliant manner.
Setting up RMS to connect with a Payment Gateway merchant account provides the ability to securely process payments or refunds directly from any account in RMS.
Obtaining a Gateway Account
Prior to being able to process payments via a Payment Gateway in RMS, you will require an account with your chosen provider.
To begin this process, first, contact your bank to enhance your merchant facility to be e-commerce enabled.
Once your merchant facility has been enhanced for e-commerce, contact your chosen provider to sign up for an account.
