Gliding Through PCI DSS Compliance
Empowering Sandbanks Style for Payments and Compliance
Paddleboarding has taken off as a recreational activity, and it’s easy to see why. It’s not as difficult as surfing, you don’t need waves, and the inflatable boards are simpler to transport. When Andy Belcher decided to purchase a stand-up paddleboard (SUP), he thought it must be possible to produce something high quality at a lower price. Sandbanks Style was born, a family-run company that designs, builds and sells high-quality SUPs for about half the price. Its boards have been rated 10 out of 10 for overall value and 9 for performance by SUPboarder Magazine, and it’s now the most recommended SUP brand in the U.K.
The start-up needed to find a partner with payment solutions that could scale with them from launch into continued growth, as well as ensure Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance. Sandbanks Style selected Worldpay from FIS® as its solutions, services and ongoing consultation empower the company to achieve both.
