How do I complete our PCI Screening?

PCI compliance is required by all credit card brands. You will work within the Worldline PCI portal to meet the PCI compliance requirements.  

Once your new merchant account has been approved with Worldline, you will receive an email from Worldline PCI with login instructions for the Worldline PCI portal.

You will work within the Worldline PCI portal to complete two steps:

Both steps must be completed to become compliant.

Completing your business profile

We have included some steps for how to answer the business profile questions. This will ensure that you get the correct PCI questionnaire. To log in, go to the Worldline PCI portal and enter your credentials. If it is your first time logging in, you will need to register.

  1. Once you have logged in, click into your business profile to begin. You should see the page below to get started. We recommend you watch the video, and once done, click on Start business profile. This profile is only related to your payments processed through this Worldline account. 
  2. On the next page, confirm your merchant account numbers. Click Next.
  3. You will then be asked how you accept payment. Most businesses will fall under the “I accept payments through multiple channels, through a website, or over the telephone / Internet” category. These instructions apply to those businesses that are in that category. Click Next.
  4. For the next prompt, “Choose an assessment method”, select “Guide Me”. Click Next.
  5. For the next question, “How do you accept payment cards?” Please use the tool tip (little green question mark) if you need further information on third-party hosting. Select your answer. Click Next.
  6. For the next prompt, “Pay by Link,” you will be asked a question relating to payments via a Pay by Link solution. The answer is likely Yes. Click Next.
  7. For the next prompt, “Your Pay By Link solution provider,” please provide the name of your Pay By Link solution provider. For example, if you collect registration fees for a daycare, gym or camp, or if you accept online orders for a restaurant, your provider is the software company that provides your registration or order tool. If you use Worldline’s Checkout link builder, your provider is Worldline. Click Next.
  8. For the next prompt, “Your Pay By Link solution provider,” you will be asked if your provider is PCI DSS compliant. The answer is likely Yes. Click Next.
  9. For the next prompt, “Pay by Link Only,” you will be asked if Pay by Link is the only method your customers use to pay by card. The answer is likely Yes. Click Next.
  10. For the next prompt, “Other uses of card numbers,” you will be asked two questions related to the sending, storing, and receiving of card numbers. The answers are likely No and No. Click Next.
  11. For the next prompt, “Your company policy for information security,” you will be asked about your company’s policy for information security. You should only choose the first or second option. If you need a policy, click the Download link to be provided one. Click Next.
  12. For the next prompt, “A summary of how and where you handled card payment,” you will provide information on where and how you handle card payments. Fill in each field with the required information. Click Next.
  13. You have now completed your business profile. You will still need to complete the security assessment.
