Becoming compliant DOES NOT relieve a merchant from having to pay the PCI fee. The fee happens approximately 90 days after the account has been approved. You will receive a letter indicating the approximate date that they will be assessed with the fee. Then each year after, the fee will be drafted on that same day.
