Can the full credit card number be printed on the consumer’s copy of the receipt?

PCI DSS requirement 3.3 states “Mask PAN when displayed (the first six and last four digits are the maximum number of digits to be displayed).” While the requirement does not prohibit printing of the full card number or expiry date on receipts (either the merchant copy or the consumer copy), please note that PCI DSS does not override any other laws that legislate what can be printed on receipts (such as the U.S. Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) or any other applicable laws).

See the italicized note under PCI DSS requirement 3.3 “Note: This requirement does not supersede stricter requirements in place for displays of cardholder data—for example, legal or payment card brand requirements for point-of-sale (POS) receipts. Any paper receipts stored by merchants must adhere to the PCI DSS, especially requirement 9 regarding physical security”.
