BigCommerce recently announced that they are now PCI compliant. This means that if you use BigCommerce’s e-commerce hosting solution, your online store is also now PCI compliant.
PCI compliance is important because it means that your e-commerce store meets the information security standards defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. The goal of the standards is to reduce credit card fraud by increasing controls around data and its exposure to compromise.
We’re very excited about this news, and are especially impressed because BigCommerce is one of the few shopping cart systems that has been certified as PCI compliant. It’s just another reason why we prefer using their platform to the many other options out there!
