What is PCI DSS Compliance?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organizations that handle credit card and debit card information. Defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, the standard was created to increase controls around credit card data to reduce credit card fraud via its exposure. If you want to sell online and accept payments from Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover credit cards, your software and hosting needs to be PCI compliant.

Many online radio retailers use custom built websites that are either self hosted or using a shared server from a GoDaddy type company. Your information is shared with this provider along with the payment processor they use (Venmo, PayPal, square, etc) and the shopping cart provider (3DCart, Yahoo Stores, Volusion, etc). Your name, email, phone #, and credit card # has now been shared with up to 4 different companies who each have their own PCI standards.

Radio Depot's partnership with Shopify means that your information never leaves their certified Level 1 PCI DSS compliant servers. They currently manage 600,000+ online stores that do in excess of $82,000,000,000 in sales.
