What is “CSP” and why is it important?

The Compliance Services Package (CSP) is a standard component of our merchant services offerings. The PCI Security Standards Council mandates PCI compliance for all merchants accepting credit and debit card payments. Our Compliance Services Package provides you with the tools and resources to achieve compliance, and protect your business. Unlike the majority of our competitors, we offer increased protection for our merchants beyond the standard PCI compliance assistance including:

  • Breach Protection – If you receive a fine due to a breach of your merchant services data, and you can confirm that you were PCI compliant at the time of the breach, you will be credited up to a maximum of $10,000.
  • Chargeback Protection: You will be reimbursed for up to two transaction chargeback fees per calendar year. Up to a maximum of $25 per occurrence.
  • PCI Compliance: Cayan, through its partnership with ControlScan, provides an easy way to become PCI compliant. ControlScan guides you through the compliance process, beginning with a self-assessment questionnaire. We provide you with personalized guidance and support to achieve and maintain PCI compliance.

Funding & Deposits

I just ran a transaction - when will I see the funds in my bank account?

  • Some businesses can expect to see the deposit for today's transactions in their bank account the next day.
  • All deposits should be made within three business days.
  • You can view your transactions by accessing “Your Access One” at any time.

When will I receive batches which I processed over the weekend?

Separate batches processed over the weekend go into your bank account at the same time. For example, if you process $400 on Friday and $500 on Saturday, you can expect to see a deposit of $900 to your bank account on Monday or Tuesday.
