Great case study by Creditcall on our KioskSimple integration with their EMV Payment Gateway.
RedSwimmer was looking for a way to provide EMV compliance to users of their kiosk software, KioskSimple.
The Creditcall EMV Virtual Terminal is a convenient way to test your EMV implementation without requiring a physical EMV terminal.
Fortunately the Creditcall EMV Virtual Terminal is designed to emulate an EMV terminal. This makes for a quick and affordable way to test EMV contact and contactless NFC payments in your application without purchasing EMV hardware.
In this article we’re going to cover how to use the Creditcall EMV Virtual Terminal with KioskSimple kiosk software.
If you have a website which processes credit card payments from an attended POS or unattended kiosk and you want to add support for EMV Chip & PIN or NFC then you’re probably having trouble finding a simple solution.
We’ve meet many people just like you who are running their website with support for card present transactions via a magnetic stripe card reader, but need to achieve EMV compliance by the EMV 2015 liability shift deadline.
If you operate a self-service kiosk or unattended payment terminal which accepts credit card payments then you’re probably already aware of the looming October 2015 liability shift.
Everyone is scrambling to integrate their payment systems with EMV compliant hardware, but according to CreditCall the typical EMV migration takes 22 months, so for many companies it may be a case of too little too late.
What’s the difference between EMV compliance and PCI compliance? The short answer is they’re both guidelines for protecting cardholder data for the purpose preventing fraud, but they focus on different elements of the credit card transaction.
If you’ve been watching the news lately you’ve probably heard about the credit card security breach at Target and all the buzz around “Chip and PIN” or “EMV.” In the case of Target, while hackers could have stolen the information from EMV capable cards the data would have been worthless. This is because EMV cards contain a microprocessor which produces unique output each time the card is used, unlike traditional magstripe cards. This makes the EMV cards difficult to replicate and removes the incentive for hackers to steal information from EMV card transactions. Continue reading “EMV is Coming to Self-Service Kiosks in 2015”
The following is a list of EMV capable card readers, PIN pads and contactless card readers that are designed specifically for self-service environments like a kiosk. As we’re beginning research and development on adding EMV capabilities to our US-based kiosk applications it makes sense to take inventory of the available EMV capable devices specifically designed for the self-service kiosk industry and weigh all of our options. This is why I’m taking the time to assemble this list of EMV capable payment devices which will likely grow as the looming October 2015 EMV liability shift draws nearer.
