Does my business require a PCI network scan?

Whether or not your business requires a network scan depends on your processing environment. Chances are if you are using a point of sale system that does not have built-in EMV readers, you will require a scan. Here are some scenarios that do not require a scan:

  • Virtual terminal (, PayTrace, etc.) that does not take physical card information
  • eCommerce sites that do not store card information or don’t operate on an in-house server
  • Standalone credit card terminal connected via dial-up
  • P2PE secured payment terminals
  • Payment terminals utilizing 4G/5G connectivity
