Although the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is not new, you have to know it well to know how to protect the client during their payments at the hotel. Above all, because it is one of the most demanding regulations worldwide in relation to data security. In other words, you have to know how to act to convey confidence to the guest and avoid the serious fines that could occur.
This stringent regulation ensures that customers’ personal and financial information is secure. What’s more, it is essential to comply when handling sensitive information like credit cards. That is why PaynoPain has created a new technology that facilitates its application and at the same time allows to avoid fraud.
“When it comes to providing total peace of mind in contexts where cybercrime is the order of the day, technology is the best ally,” says Jordi Nebot, CEO and Co-founder of the Spanish technology company. In addition, he assures that digitization is necessary “both for businesses and for users.” In the case of payments, he explains that “it must be quick and easy, but above all, safe.”
For this reason, he states that it is important that when choosing online payment solutions, hotels “consider compliance with current regulations.” In turn, he believes they must rely on alternatives that “have the necessary tools to minimize the risk of fraud«. “In this way, the user and the merchant are provided with a comprehensive security experience, which guarantees the success of the transactions and the business,” he concludes.
Lean on digitization to convey security
Any business that processes, transmits, or stores payment cardholder data must be PCI DSS compliant, regardless of business size. This affects any physical or online business that provides subscription services. Of course, it is key in the hotel sector, which must know how to protect the client so that make your payments safely and intelligently.
To comply with this PCI regulation in a comfortable and effective way, businesses must have technological allies that provide them with adequate tools. This is the case of Paylands, which offers suppliers of goods and services a protection system for bank cards. On top of that, as they do not require any type of integration, this translates into significant cost savings. In this way, compliance with laws with all guarantees is facilitated through the PCI-PROXY service.
Through this service, any business will be able to comply with security regulations. Beyond securing your customers’ personal and payment data, avoid potential fraud attempts. All this without carrying out any complex management to implement the service. In other words, this online payment method radically reduces the possibility of being scammed, while increasing business productivity. Thus, it is possible to eliminate all contact of the establishment’s staff with the financial data.
With this payment system, the experience is made easier for customers. In addition, the company also benefits, since it allows you to make payments without the presence of the user and without the need to re-enter the card data. Above, thanks to the tokenization of the cards it is checked if it could have been stolen or if it does not have enough balance. In this way, by means of the token (security key that identifies each card) provided by this system, it is possible, for example, to charge the customer for subscriptions automatically.
