Credit Card Processing Audit For Businesses Using Paypal or Shopify

PayPal and Shopify are well-known PAYFAC (payment facilitator) Models used by small to mid-sized business. On top of offering credit card payment processing, they both offer a number of business management tools with the goal of simplifying eCommerce.

Paypal and Shopify are both considered an aggregator: a wholesale buyer or broker of a utility service, such as electricity or long-distance telephone service (or credit card payment processing), who packages it and sells it to consumers. Instead of acquiring a merchant account, gateway, and payment processor, merchants can choose to use an aggregator like PayPal or Shopify. Merchants pay for a packaged payment processing service that PayPayl or Shopify take care of for you, in return charging a flat rate with fixed fees based on location and currency.

Using this simplified credit card processing system, merchants can accept all forms of payment including:

  • Mastercard
  • Visa
  • Discover
  • American Express

Many merchants can solve PCI compliance issues when using PayPal and Shopify, however, not all PayPal and Shopify plans provide the necessary safeguards for PCI compliance. While many merchants appreciate the predictable flat rate fees for services provided by these companies, this is not always a cost effective payment model for larger corporations. If you are concerned that you have outgrown a PAYFAC model for credit card processing, speak with Verisave.
