Quick Overview

What is PCI compliance graphic

What is PCI compliance?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security rules created to protect sensitive cardholder data online. The PCI DSS is managed by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), an organization that was created by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB. Requirements for PCI range from implementing data encryption and using firewalls to maintaining access controls and conducting regular maintenance checks.

While Formstack is PCI compliant, using our system does not relieve you from fulfilling other requirements outlined by the PCI DSS. As a merchant, you're still responsible for ensuring all your processes meet the appropriate standards. For more information, check out the PCI SSC's official website.

Where can I embed my payment forms?

Formstack offers multiple embed options. Add payment forms to your website or social media platform, share a link via email, use Lightboxes and iFrames, add forms to your content management system, or tweak your form’s HTML coding to suit your needs.

What payment integrations can I use with my forms?

There are nine different payment integrations available with Formstack, including three HIPAA compliant options. Available integrations include Authorize.Net, Stripe, PayPal, PayPal Pro, PayPal Payflow, Bambora, Chargify, First Data, and WePay.
