However,  this is not the reason this product pricing practice started.The practice of setting prices just below the whole number was initiated to ensure that the sales clerk had to open the till and give proper change for each transaction, thus recording the sale and preventing him/her from pocketing the cash.

Not going to re post this, but here is our Simple PCI Guide for Merchants. All Zen Cart owners should by now be PCI DSS compliant and this is a common sense guide to get you started on the road to compliance if you are not.

This applies to every Zen Cart, anywhere which is accepting credits cards on site. Those using PayPal offsite, 2 checkout and other payment services need only worry that their processor is compliant.
