Booking System PCI Compliance – How does it affect you


PCI Compliance in BookingLive: Online Booking System

This year we have heard many of our customers worried about PCI Compliance, so how does this work when you’re using a BookingLive booking system?

Your requirements

Everyone who takes card payments via their website, must now be PCI Compliant, but it is important to note there are many different levels of compliance. Due to BookingLive using hosted payment solutions, your compliance requirement is one of the lowest possible.

Most of our clients will be required to fill out a SAQ A assessment form, which is a quick and free 0nline questionnaire comprising of 13 questions.

How do I know if I qualify for SAQ A?

If you have a booking system with us, and you’re using one of the gateways listed below, you are more than likely only required to fill in a SAQ A assessment, this is automatically approved and more importantly is free for your business.

    • Sagepay
