    Hi,
    Thank you for your article. Do we need to pay an annual subscription in order to have the PCI DSS current. Or, should that be part of the payment processing fee I’m already paying? Your advise is appreciated.
    Thank you.

      Hi Siu,

      PCI DSS compliance fees are handled differently by every provider. You might have a single annual fee, a monthly fee, or the cost might be bundled in with your monthly account fee. Some providers do not charge for PCI compliance, but it’s not really free – it’s just included in some other fee or covered by higher processing rates than you would otherwise have to pay.
