PA-DSS Solution

The Payment Application Data Security Standards (PA-DSS) covers distributed payment applications which process, store or transmit cardholder data. For merchants and service providers to comply with the PCI DSS, any third party applications they utilize must be PA-DSS validated. For most POS system developers, validating compliance with the PA-DSS is a time consuming and costly task which consumes valuable resources that could otherwise be spent building and marketing their core POS system. 

Payment Logistics developed Paygistix Client to solve the PA-DSS problem for POS application developers by completely removing a POS system from the scope of PA-DSS compliance. Paygistix Client is unlike any other PA-DSS solution in the marketplace.

With Paygistix Client, POS system developers can maintain the benefits of fully integrated payments while never having to worry about validating compliance with the PA-DSS because their POS application will never touch sensitive cardholder data. 

Here's how it works.

  1. Point of Sale application sends a request to Paygistix Client to process a transaction for a specified amount.
  2. Paygistix Client collects all sensitive cardholder data and processes the transaction.
  3. Paygistix Client returns the results of the transaction to the POS application along with a token that the POS application can use to subsequently manage the transaction.

And that's just scratching the surface. Paygistix Client does much more than simply remove a payment application from the scope of PA-DSS compliance. POS application developers that integrate with Paygistix Client realize tremendous value by enabling their application with additional built-in features, all available without any additional coding requirements. These features include:

  • EMV readiness solution
  • NFC compatibility
  • Tokenization
  • Online Signature Capture
  • Point to Point Encryption
  • Pin Debit
  • Compatibility with thousands of merchant account providers across multiple payment networks
