PCI KIosk. It means different things to people. Are your kiosks PCI compliant?  EMV compliant? Is your application PA-DSS certified?  Odds are against it. For PCI it’s easy to check just by going to the Validated Applications section on the PCI site. EMV introduces Level 1, Level 2 and then Level 3 certifications. Call them Mechanical, Firmware and Application.  There is also a listing of devices (emvco.com).

But I don’t want to do that — Let’s list out some of Why Nots –

  1. it costs money to do. You’ll need a QSA and that could be $75K easy.
  2. it takes time.  Figure a year or a month depending.
  3. It is inconvenient. It’s unnecessary regulation given our environment.  But it can come back to extract a heavy price in the future.
  4. All of my transactions are so small and so many that the liability factor is low for any significant fraud rate.
