Creditcall KioskSimple EMV Case Study

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 Challenge

RedSwimmer was looking for a way to provide EMV compliance to users of their kiosk software, KioskSimple. Many of RedSwimmer customers are retail POS providers and unattended payments providers who needed support with making their solution EMV-compliant. Their kiosk or POS applications were developed as a web app and used the KioskSimple software which acts as middleware, providing a JavaScript API which can easily be called by a web application and thereby add support for accepting EMV payments via Creditcall’s payment gateway solution ChipDNA using the Windows SDK.

Using the Creditcall EMV Virtual Terminal With 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.

EMV JavaScript API for the Creditcall Payment Gateway

If you accept credit card payments from your kiosk or POS then you’ve probably been thinking it’s about time to become EMV compliant.

This can be especially challenging if your kiosk or POS has been developed as a web application.

Options are limited when it comes to finding an EMV JavaScript API that will play nice with your website.

This is why we built an EMV JavaScript API into KioskSimple which interfaces directly to the Creditcall payment gateway.

The following example will show how to easily integrate the Creditcall EMV payment gateway into your web application using the KioskSimple EMV JavaScript API.

Adding EMV Support to Your Website Is Easy With KioskSimple

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.

This is why we created a way for web developers to easily integrate EMV support into their website using JavaScript, KioskSimple and the Creditcall payment gateway.

How You Can Easily Prevent Credit Card Fraud at Your Kiosk

EMV kiosk softwareIf 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.

The good news is that by using an EMV payment gateway you can dramatically reduce your migration time and avoid being caught unprepared by the looming EMV liability shift deadline. Continue reading “How You Can Easily Prevent Credit Card Fraud at Your Kiosk”

EMV Compliance vs. PCI Compliance

Ingenico iSelf-Series Kiosk EMV DeviceWhat’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.

“To clarify it even further and more simply, PCI is about making sure the card data doesn’t get stolen and is secure in the first place and EMV is making sure if the data IS stolen that the content is rendered useless.” – CPI PCI and EMV: What’s the difference?

EMV is Coming to Self-Service Kiosks in 2015

Kiosk EMV payment deviceIf 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.

EMV Capable Card Readers, PIN Pads and Contactless Readers for Self-Service Kiosks

Ingenico kiosk EMV chip and PIN and contactless readerThe 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.
