    This very important article should be updated as a lot has changed since 2011 and it would be really great if when you review or update a POS system that you indicate if the integrated POS system is PCI Complaint.

    We are attempting to make sure that when our merchants look for a new POS system that they make sure it is PIC Complaint and that is not easy as many of the systems are not dealing with this problem correctly.

      BofA MS is again extorting funds from my account. When the BofA branch closed its doors and moved off the island, I closed my business checking account. I had to leave my Merchant Account open to avoid a $ 500.00 early termination fee. I pay the $19.95 maintenance fee quarterly to keep B of A happy. I just received a statement talking about increased rates etc and hidden in there is the term ” Special Assessment” if you fail to have your credit card processing device PCI certified. I called BofA MS and explained that the account has not been used in more then 12 months that the BofA provided IPhone card reader had been returned to the bank and how do I certify something I do not have. The response was well sir that’s your problem. Again the customer service does not seem to care or understand. If the credit card unit is provided by BofA MS and the software that runs in the IPhone comes from BofA MS why must I pay to insure it’s correct ?
