Sage Payment Solutions for credit and debit cards is PCI Compliant, which means it meets data security standards that handle branded credit cards from major card issuers like Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB. As part of these standards, companies that provide this compliance, like Sage, enable a secure network, protect cardholder data, monitor and perform quality, and more. For example, if you want to store credit card information for your customers, you may do so in Sage 50 and it will be stored in the Cloud, not in your company database or on your machine, which violates those PCI compliance standards.
