PCI Compliance

A payment solution from Datatrans - the best basic requirement for your PCI compliance.

Datatrans AG fulfils all the PCI guidelines and it has been officially certified by VISA and MasterCard as the Payment Service Provider (annual renewal) since 06.06.06. With this certification we ensure both technical and organisational security.


The PCI certification from Datatrans protects you and your customers against hackers. Your customers know that they can make a credit card payment on your site easily and without risk – a vital consideration when making a purchase on the internet.

With a correct implementation of the payment solution from Datatrans (in accordance with the specifications), you fulfil the technical requirements of PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard).

The receipt, processing and storing (incl. logging) of card data in the Merchant System is not PCI compliant, although posting data on the Datatrans payments form is permitted.

We can help in special cases with user profiles:

  • Alias (Tokenizer) solution (in e-commerce and mobile e-commerce)
    With the credit card alias from Datatrans you invest in profile data without critical data having to be saved on your own servers. You receive a reference to the card number (alias/token) from us, which you deposit in the profile of the customer.
  • Datatrans PCI Proxy solution
    The Datatrans PCI Proxy is an alternative to the expensive PCI DSS certification for service providers, especially in the tourism field, who rely on collection of credit card details as a guarantee for pre-booked services.
