The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a worldwide information security standard defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. The standard was created to help payment card industry organizations that process card payments prevent credit card fraud through increased controls around data and its exposure to compromise. The standard applies to all organizations that hold, process, or exchange cardholder information from any card branded with the logo of one of the card brands.

It is the goal of the EBMS software development team to develope and maintain high quality software that meets the needs of the business owner. One of the growing needs is the ability to conveniently and securly process a wide variety of payment methods include credit card and debit card transactions. The new PCI specifications require that any credit card information including the credit card number be security stored and processed. The EBMS software has implemented a method that allows credit card payments without ever storing the credit card information within the EBMS databases. All credit card information is immediately passed to the PCI Compliance Payment processing software and EBMS only stores the last 4 digits of the credit card number. Any payments using the approved Verifone payment devices are processed within EBMS without giving the user or the EBMS software access to the credit card number. This secure method of credit card processing protects the customer's information without sacrificing the efficiency of processing a credit card payment.

Credit card information can also be recorded within the customer record for future sales order or reoccurring billing The EBMS software only stores a proprietary identification code and the last 4 digits of the card. This fictitious code is passed from EBMS into the PCI Compliance system at the time of the sale to identify the complete credit card information. This feature facilitates reoccurring billing using a stored credit card without the liability of storing credit card information within EBMS.

The staff at Eagle Business Software recommend that you do not store any credit card information within the notes, memo, or terms fields of the software. All credit card information must be properly stored to meet PCI compliance standards. Protect yourself and your customer.
