What PCI DSS level am I and what does it mean?

If you're accepting payments, you've already committed to being PCI DSS compliant and to ensure your daily processes are properly secure.

Your merchant level dictates the standards you need to meet and maintain for PCI DSS compliance. There are 4 levels of merchants, based on the number of transactions you process each year.
