However, I'm having trouble verifying that some of these gateways are compliant with Visa's Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) and the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). They are not listed on Visa's website as being compliant. I've tried to locate these gateway's/processors under different names based on who owns the company, but I've had no luck. So, are these gateways/processors not compliant with industry security standards? I can't imagine that Visa/MC would continue to allow them to operate if they were not.
Here is the list of providers that I can not verify compliance for. I've only got up to the i's so far, so there may be more.
First Data is actually a transaction processor for a lot of the electronic payment gateways like LinkPoint, Verisign's Payflow, and Authorizenet.com.
2CO is similar to a third party processor. They resell your products and services on their secure website. I would imagine that they would have to be Level One compliant.
Bluepay I think uses Authorizenet.com as the gateway - I think it is similar to LinkPoint and Yourpay. Chase / Paymentech resold the LinkPoint gateway as YourPay because First Data fully owned Cardservice and took control and re-built the gateway. Hopefully by next quarter once they get their redundant datacenter up and running - they will decide on which name to keep.
