PCI Compliance

Kurt Hansen -

Since you are accepting credit cards, you need to be PCI Compliant. With Stripe providing the credit card processing, this has become a lot easier.

Here is what you need to do (as of Feb 1, 2019):

  1. Log in to your Stripe dashboard at https://stripe.com
  2. Click on "Settings" and scroll down until you see a heading for PCI Compliance. Click on that.
  3. You will be asked a couple of questions to complete your self assessment questionnaire (SAQ). Stripe completes the rest for you.
  4. If you are asked for proof of PCI Compliance, provide your SAQ. Stripe provides it. Click on the View SAQ A button to get a copy.

This is an easier process than with Moneris/Vantiv or PayFlow Pro gateways because Stripe handles credit cards differently. Stripe converts the credit card number to a token in the donor's browser. Thus, the credit card number never passes through your servers or CharityWeb's servers; it only goes between the donor's browser and Stripe.
