In the age of online shopping, payment by credit card is, in addition to the tried and tested payment options paypal and immediate transfer, also a very widespread and pleasant payment method. Since you have to provide your credit card details, it is also a very sensitive issue.

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (or PCI DSS for short) is the common, globally valid IT security standard of the leading credit card companies. All companies that process, store or forward credit card data must prove that they meet the requirements of the standard.

What does the PCI DSS seal of approval for credit card payments mean?
The certifying company, usd AG, writes about it:
“For more security. More confidence. Turnover. Demonstrate the security of your IT systems to customers, employees, insurance companies and partners with a certificate and seal according to a worldwide standard. Check your systems for weak points and minimize acute risks.
The provider uses a certified payment solution and has issued a binding, correct self-disclosure on the secure handling of credit card data. The company thus complies with the security standard of the credit card industry (PCI DSS). PCI DSS requires the questionnaire to be updated every twelve months”.
