Who We Are

Company Overview

PCI Applications

PCI Applications was formed to create software and value-added products for the PCI Industry processors.

Our Flagship product, MyPCISite, is designed and created as a friendly web site for smaller merchants, where they can easily and quickly understand their PCI requirements, avoid or mitigate data breaches, and securely handle credit card transactions.

We understand that no one is entirely protected from hackers and card data theft. To further protect merchant’s businesses, we can integrate into our program a level of financial protection in the form of an expense reimbursement program for costs associated with a data breach.

Our site also includes security training modules on key issues that can be easily completed on that will help merchants understand what PCI Compliance is all about and what to do to protect themselves.

The history of the principals who created PCI Applications is as small merchants and as IT staff working in ISO organizations. So we understand the credit card industry and PCI compliance as well as the priorities and needs of a small business.

In this way, we can work with our partners -- Banks, ISOs and credit card processors -- to make this solution available for their merchant portfolios. If you are an ISO or Processor and are interested in the MyPCISite offering, please Contact us

If you are a merchant interested in our program, please conact your ISO and ask for our program.

What Clients Say

This process was so easy; I was able to complete my yearly PCI requirements in a total of 15 minutes of time spent.

Thanks, MyPCISite, for this simple, merchant-friendly tool that allowed me to easily complete my SAQ and get on with running my business.

Small Merchant

When a breach occurred in my business, the staff were extremely helpful in assisting with questions.

When the actual fines were levied by Visa and MasterCard, we were swiftly reimbursed. A stellar program.

Small Merchant

Your PCI Simplified source is extremely helpful in allowing me to understand the basics of PCI. I would never have been able to wade my way through all the requirements on my own.

Small Merchant

When I learned I was breached, I was very worried and stressed out. When I was informed that breach protection was in effect, I felt a wash of relief. My business was protected. I can’t thank you all enough for the program you put together.
