PCI Compliance reduces shopping cart abandons and ensures you and your customers are protected.


As an online merchant, being PCI compliant shows customers and business partners that you take data security seriously. It demonstrates your high level of commitment to protecting your customers’ sensitive information, and removes customer doubts about security that can cause them to abandon. 

When an ecommerce website customer reaches the point of checkout, the last thing you want to do is give them any reason to abandon their ecommerce shopping cart. Today’s online shoppers know to look for indications that their credit card data and other personal information will be secure during checkout. 

Being able to state that your ecommerce store is PCI compliant - and following industry best practices for data security - can remove any lingering doubts in customers’ minds that could cause them to abandon their cart.

What is PCI Compliance?

In short, being PCI compliant means that your ecommerce business conforms to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and has met best practices for storing, transmitting, and handling sensitive information over the Internet. 

PCI DSS is a comprehensive, multifaceted security standard maintained by the PCI Security Standards Council. It was first introduced in 2006 to increase controls over data security and proactively protect credit card merchants and customers from the escalating threat of credit card fraud. It has since evolved to keep pace with the increasing number and types of ecommerce websites and technologies involved in the e-payment ecosystem.

PCI compliant shopping cart software for total protection.

For your protection – and that of your customers – it is vital that the ecommerce platform or shopping cart software you choose for your business is PCI compliant. 

Companies using a non PCI compliant shopping cart software face serious challenges. First and foremost, they are not acting proactively or responsibly to protect their customers’ sensitive information. 

If they haven’t done so already, online businesses using a non PCI compliant ecommerce platform will need to decide between moving to a PCI compliant shopping cart solution or leaving their company risk for costly lawsuits from customers and possible fines. Make no mistake: It is in your best interest to be PCI compliant from the start. Regardless of your role in your company – IT, marketing, finance, legal 
 ensuring you select an ecommerce shopping cart software like Multifront that features PCI Compliance just makes sense.

Not all PCI Compliance is equal.

Beware of shopping cart software and ecommerce platforms that claim to be “PCI compliant.” When it comes to payment applications, not all PCI compliance is equal. 

Znode Multifront is PCI compliant, having achieved PCI compliance under the newest and most stringent PA-DSS (Payment Application Data Security Standard) certification process to date. PCI compliance is not a one-time thing. It is rigorous and iterative, and the standards continue to evolve. Just because a shopping cart solution was PCI compliant at one point doesn’t mean that it is PCI compliant today, or that it will continue to be compliant in the future. 

Multifront utilizes an ongoing, comprehensive PCI strategy that allows our ecommerce software platform to do more than just meet today’s PCI compliance checkboxes. We are constantly monitoring changes in ecommerce security threats and plans of the PCI Security Standards Council to help position us to meet future PCI requirements. That bodes well for you and your ecommerce investment.
