PCI Compliance and You

Protect Your Account From Association Fines and Penalties*

At no upfront cost, you will have the option of extending your 1-year of account protection to additional years of protection. There is no charge to use or complete the SAQ. EPI will shield you from Visa® and MasterCard® Association Fines and Penalties as a result of non-completion of the SAQ after you validate your account.*


If you have not completed your Annual SAQ via our validator and/or have an open IP address for processing that has not been scanned, you may be receiving a charge of $20 per month for not providing that information to us.
