Travelport’s online PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) certification referral program, supported by SecurityMetrics, is available to all travel agents and Travelport supplier and development partners to reach certified PCI DSS compliance.
The innovative online Wizard Tool enables you to achieve PCI DSS compliance as smoothly and effectively as possible at Travelport preferred rates from US$69.99, with an average cost of US$199.98 12-month subscription, depending on your company’s total card sales and number of IP addresses.
PCI DSS compliance is mandatory for any business that accepts or touches card data. Many merchants who accept cards as payment are unknowingly charged non-compliance fees in their monthly billing from their (bank) acquirer which on average are US$30 per month.
By March 2018, under IATA resolution 818g and 812, any IATA agent that accepts card transactions against its own merchant agreement or issues BSP card transactions is required to provide proof of PCI DSS compliance to IATA.
This PCI DSS certification referral program provides an online Wizard Tool to guide you through the self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ) process and enable you to obtain PCI DSS certification. Multi-language support is also available, as is customer support to hand hold you through the online process.
This referral program is supported by IATA and Aleks Popovich IATA’s Senior Vice President Financial and Distribution Services, commented: “This type of initiative from our partners is commended and will greatly assist our industry in maintaining PCI DSS compliance at every card payment touch point. It also supports IATA’s rollout of New Generation of IATA Settlement Systems (NewGen ISS) initiative, which represents the most extensive modernisation of IATA’s Billing and Settlement Plan (BSP) since its creation in 1971. I am also pleased that Travelport has agreed to now make this PCI DSS certification tool and referral program available to all IATA BSP agencies globally.”
