Point of Sale developers prepare for US EMV with Datacap

 Credit Card Padlock

Datacap Systems, a leading provider of integrated payments solutions for hundreds of unique Point of Sale packages, has released an integration guide and developer’s toolkit for dsiEMVUS™, Datacap’s universal control that allows POS providers to add support for US EMV (chip-based) transactions. Datacap’s “one-to-many” integration will allow POS providers to send US EMV transactions through their merchants’ payment processor of choice via an evolving list of supported hardware. Because of Datacap’s “Semi-Integrated” approach, ISVs drastically reduce their certification requirements as Datacap is performing the full software and hardware certifications on their behalf.

“With the liability associated with the use of in-store fraudulent cards shifting from issuing banks to the acquirer/merchant in October of this year, Point of Sale providers are anxious to add support for EMV (chip-based) transactions to their offering,” commented Justin Zeigler, marketing director at Datacap Systems. “By providing an early development path to EMV, Datacap can ensure our POS partners hit the ground running once EMV-enabled payment applications are certified and released.”

One out-of-scope payments integration allows Datacap partners to support credit, debit, gift and loyalty transactions via virtually all payment processors on a growing selection of hardware from leading manufacturers. For the security –conscious merchant, a combination of EMV, encryption and tokens ensure that consumer data is protected at the POS and in transit. Datacap’s payment applications are in parallel certifications with a variety of US payment processing hosts now, including Mercury Payments, Paymentech, Heartland Payments, TSYS, Sterling, Vantiv and First Data, with the first wave of EMV-enabled software and hardware solutions scheduled for release in mid to late summer.
