PCI Tutorial

A Guide to the ControlScan Self Assessment Questionnaire

Upon approval of your BluePay merchant account, you should have received an email from ControlScan with information on how to log in and become PCI compliant. If you did not receive this email, please email us at  payments@eCatholic.com

As outlined in the email from ControlScan, you must complete a PCI compliance Self Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) once a year in order to be PCI compliant and avoid paying a monthly noncompliance fee. To log in and get started with the SAQ, follow the instructions in the email from ControlScan. 

Below is a guide to help you get started with the SAQ and make sure that you only have to answer the questions necessary for using eCatholic Payments.
