PCI “Non-compliance” Fees
The non-compliance PCI fee is assessed to your merchant account and provides no value except to collect extra revenue for your processor.
It is a monthly fee for not being compliant with the PCI DSS standards. The fee usually ranges from $9.99 to $39.95,
This type of PCI fee can easily be removed by becoming compliant. Simply call your processor and they can walk you through the steps. In most cases, it’s just about filling out a form online with a PCI Company like Trustwave or Control Scan or some other Compliance company. You will log into their portal, complete the information based on the type of processing you have (terminal or e-commerce). This process should take anywhere between 20 minutes to an hour. There is also a toll free number for the PCI Company if you run into issues. If you continue to receive a non-compliance fees even after you’ve completed this questionnaire online and met the requirements, then it’s time to switch to a new processor.
