Top 5 reasons you should avoid your processor's self-service PCI program

Tokenizing your transactions can result in lower fees

Tokenization replaces your sensitive card data with a jumble of letters and numbers that are useless to a hacker.
In general, to “tokenize” something means to replace it with something else that represents the original but that is useless outside a certain context. The idea is similar to the tokens you might buy at a carnival in place of cash.
Everyone in the payment processing environment benefits from the use of tokenization; except for the hackers. For merchants, credit card issuers and payment networks, tokenization reduces fraud, which reduces the cost of doing business.
The reduced risk of tokenized transactions results in reduced credit card processing fees and interchange costs.
Tokenization is just one of the areas that Audit Advantage evaluates when helping our customers reduce their credit card processing costs.
