PDG Commerce - The First PCI PA-DSS Certified Shopping Cart/Storefront Recommended for New Deployments
PDG Software is pleased to offer eCommerce shopping cart software and solutions that have been certified as secure payment
applications via the PCI Security Standards Council PA-DSS program (Payment Application Data Security Standard). Formerly part
of Visa's PABP (Payment Applications Best Practices), PDG's PCI Certified shopping cart software has been tested against the PCI Data
Security Standards PCI PA-DSS, the toughest and most stringent standards to date, to ensure the integrity of all cardholder data
that is collected by, stored or transmitted by the software.
Using a PCI PA-DSS certified application helps to minimize the potential for security breaches leading to compromises of card
holder data, and the damaging fraud resulting from these breaches. At this time, PDG Commerce is the only PCI PA-DSS certified
shopping cart/storefront recommended on the PCI Council's website for new merchants interested in setting up their ecommerce presence!
Current mandates from Visa, MasterCard, American Express and other major card brands require that all new merchants wishing to
accept credit card payments utilize PA-DSS certified payment applications or have their ordering process/platform certified as
PCI DSS compliant before they can be approved for a merchant account. In the near future, it will be necessary for all existing
merchants who accept credit card payments to transition to a PA-DSS certified payment application, or to go through the costly
expense of having their platform certified as PCI DSS compliant. By choosing to build your eCommerce web store using PDG's
certified solutions, you can simpify the process of acquiring merchant services and reduce the costs and efforts required to
achieve and maintain PCI DSS compliance.
