Shopify includes a PCI compliant shopping
cart and hosting for online stores.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an information security standard for organizations that handle credit card and debit card information. Defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, the standard was created to increase controls around credit card data to reduce credit card fraud via its exposure. If you want to sell online and accept payments from Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover credit cards, your software and hosting needs to be PCI compliant.
There are six categories of PCI standards that must be met in order for a merchant to be deemed compliant:
- Regularly Monitor and Test Networks
- Maintain an Information Security Policy
Yes, Shopify is certified Level 1 PCI DSS compliant. This compliance extends to all online stores powered by Shopify.

“We had moved into our new home in Colorado and never really noticed before we moved in that our cellular signal was awful. My wife and I both spend a lot of time at our home and I work a lot here too. After calling Wireless Coverage Solutions, Shane helped get the ideal kit that I would need. I didn't think it would be this easy to do but I set it up and was amazed by the results. I am forever thankful that I had called you and received the help I needed. I can now get the business calls I had been missing and don't have to pay for a land line anymore.”
