Nearly 22 million businesses have merchant accounts and accept credit cards — about half of them are in the US – and most of these businesses are subject to PCI (Payment Card Industry) Data Security Standards.
Those businesses that don’t comply are subject to significant fines and may lose their rights to accept credit cards In 2006, MasterCard, Visa, JCB, American Express, and Discover established the PCI Security Standards Council, a 3rd party entity, to manage the Payment Card Industry security standards and to promote the standard’s implementation by all companies (i.e. merchants) that accept credit/debit cards including all:
Retail merchants: Any business that operates in a storefront location, where the customers’ debit and credit cards are physically swiped through the payment terminal.
Internet merchants: Any business being run online. It allows businesses to collect and process credit and debit card information from their e-commerce website.
MOTO (mail or telephone order) merchants: Any business that operates by taking payments via the telephone and/or direct mail
