SSL and PCI Compliance for my Website

We created MyCreditRepairSite web hosting for our Credit Repair Cloud users

So If you’re using our web hosting, it’s likely that you’re a Credit Repair Cloud user. If you’re just getting started with your business and setting up your site to collect payments, don’t worry, we’re here to help!

First things first:  Are you on this page because you’re applying for a merchant account for Credit Repair?

If yes, here’s the number 1 money saving tip if you’re filling out your application for your merchant account:

Be sure to tell them that you are processing your payments “3rd party.” And if you are following  our steps, and putting chargebee plans into your web lead form, and then adding that to your site, your transactions will be 3rd party through Chargebee (in the web lead form) and protected by the SSL and security of Chargebee. So a SSL certificate of your own (for your site) is not necessary.

Otherwise, If you’re applying for a merchant account, and you don’t tell them you’re doing your processing 3rd party, they are going to force you into so many expensive add ons, security scans, etc.  So please follow this advice and tell them you’re processing your transactions 3rd party with chargebee. And that will save you a bundle (and a lot of grief and hassle). 🙂 , 

If you are following our steps and using the tools we suggest, you will already be “complaint.”  🙂

Along the way, you may read about needing SSL and other things to be “PCI complaint” — but this is not the case if you are following our steps and processing your payments 3rd party, through Chargebee (which is completely free for your first $50K in revenue). So let’s talk about what you really need to take payments on your site if you’re a Credit Repair Cloud user.

To collect credit card payments for credit repair cloud, you will need these things:

  1. A merchant account and gateway that allow for credit repair charges. You can get that ere www.creditrepaircloud.com/merchant
  2. A Chargebee account (Chargebee is software for recurring payments. A chargebee account is free with unlimited transactions for your first $50,000 in revenue, and very affordable after that. You can get that special account here https://www.chargebee.com/partners/credit-repair-cloud/

We do not offer SSL certificates for our web hosting because they are not necessary if you’re using Chargebee and our web lead form to process your payments. 

An SSL certificate adds great expense because it also requires a fixed IP address. We do not offer these. They are not necessary if you’re using Chargebee and our web lead form to process your payments, “third party.”

If you’ve already applied for a merchant account and you’re being told that your site is “Not PCI Compliant” then that is because you may have told your merchant account provider that transactions would be happening on your site. That is not the case. —  If you’re following our steps, your site will not need to be PCI compliant or have SSL because the transactions will not happen in your site. If you’re following our steps, your transactions will be 3rd party through Chargebee (in the web lead form) and protected by the SSL and security of Chargebee.

So if you signed up for a merchant account from the company we recommended, and you’re being told that your site is not compliant, call them at 1-800-988-2215 and ask to speak with Roger. He should be able to assist you to clear this up if you read this to him.

But if you’re reading all this and still wanting a site with SSL

You will need to get web hosting elsewhere. SSL requires paying for an SSL certificate and paying for a fixed IP (which we do not provide since they are not necessary if you’re running your payments 3rd party through Chargebee as we suggest).

But if you’re still wanting to take on that unnecessary expense, contact GoDaddy or some other company for your web hosting where they will sell you a SSL certificate and a fixed IP. We do not provide these, because they are unnecessary for Credit Repair Cloud users.
