We have retail unit/shop using card payments for 8 years now without problem. Last week we got a letter from the card processing company telling us they want to start charging to be PCI DSS compliant. Obviously I'm not that happy to have yet another business cost. Has anyone on here found a way to reduce the fees or does even the PCI DSS requirements even apply to me?
I do take the odd payment by phone with these details going straight into the card machine only. HSBC are requesting £3.50 net per month. I knw this isn't a lot, but its another cost against profit.
Anyone else in a similar position or found a cheaper/better way of being compliant here?

Peter HG answered 11 Months ago at 10:55You can use the "Self-Assesment Questionnaire" (SAQ) for free on the PCI DSS website. Go to the section for your type of processing. Then completing the SAQ should mean all being well, you can be confirmed as compliant if required, without having to pay the bank or a Qualified Security Assessor.
