As an event promoter and seller of event tickets online, your number one concern is likely the security and safety of your patrons.

Knowing that online ticket purchases are secure will offer great peace of mind for you and your patrons.

What is PCI Compliance?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards designed to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.

VBO Tickets is PCI compliant with validated Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) and meets the Data Security Standards set by the Payment Card Industry (PCI DSS). Routine scans validate VBO Tickets’ PCI compliant status every month.

How does PCI Compliance affect event promoters?

Whether you’re working the box office at a sporting event, or managing a theatre production with a pre-sale, you’ll be using devices to accept payments online or in person. Online, a patron performs their own purchase by entering in their credit card information at checkout. In person, promoters will be using a chip & pin device for card present transactions. In both situations, the act of taking and submitting credit card data needs to be done through a secure PCI compliant service. VBO Tickets software and integration with payment gateways and chip & pin devices complies with PCI standards, ensuring the security of your patron’s credit card and personal data.
