Why am I being charged a PCI fee?

The Annual PCI Service Fee is assessed by Sphere to mitigate the costs associated with becoming and maintaining compliance, updating terminal software, and replacing non-compliant hardware.  Sphere has arranged for your to work with ControlScan, one of the leading PCI security accessors, to become PCI compliant.  PCI compliance is a requirement of all merchants who accept credit cards as payments.  If you need help in accessing the ControlScan merchant portal, please go to https://smartscan.controlscan.com/security/index/0/overview or email support@spherecommerce.com.
