US EMV Verifone MX 915 for BB&T TSYS

Yes, we provide US EMV with chip and pin for BB&T customers wanting to use Verifone MX 915 terminals. BB&T merchants are on the First Data platform. One unique benefit of our solution on First Data is we can process retail, MOTO (mail order/telephone order), and ecommerce, including electronic bill presentment and payment (EBPP), all in a single merchant account, with proper representment to mitigate chargeback risk and maximize profits.

The transaction process is different for EMV than magnetic swipe transaction, in order to support the different flow for processing chip cards.

To use CenPOS as shown in the video, merchants need high speed internet, web browser, Verifone MX 915, and CenPOS account. No other software is needed. CenPOS can be used standalone or integrated. Integrated solutions include Infor, SAP, Dynamics AX, Quickbooks etc. In all cases, CenPOS segregates payments from the application to reduce PCI Compliance scope and improve security.

TIP:  Having an EMV capable terminal does not mean a merchant is ready to accept chip cards. In the CenPOS environment, if a merchant installed a future proof, EMV capable terminal to get ready for EMV, the next step is to convert to EMV enabled. This always requires turning on EMV at the merchant account level, in addition to other steps.

If you do not own a Verifone terminal, do not purchase one on your own via EBAY or some other source. For PCI Compliance, and overall security, the purchasing and installation process must be tightly controlled.

If you’re not a current CenPOS customer, contact Christine Speedy for sales and integrations at 954-942-0483. Don’t just get ready, get EMV Compliant.

EBill payments via text or email improve PCI Compliance video

Ebill and einvoice systems send invoices vs Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment or EBPP gets you paid from that request via text or email. This critical difference has a major impact on security and PCI Compliance. This  video demo is for a standalone solution to accept online payments, including credit card. ACH and wire. Integrated solutions for Quickbooks, ERP, or other, are also available.

Video CenPOS EBPP Lite demo shows the simplicity of sending an einvoice with request for payment via email to an existing customer, that has previously made a purchase and stored their credit card. Customers can self-update their payment methods, store multiple methods. Ask for any feature, and yes, we probably support it.

A layered approach to card not present fraud protection is critical with increasing financial industry changes. In addition to the traditional address and CVV verification, cardholder authentication, IP blocking and other tools can be used to guarantee payment against fraud globally (some restrictions apply).

Eliminate credit card authorization forms with sensitive cardholder data. No one likes them, they’re time wasters for both parties, cards get expired etc. At best, they offer flimsy protection against fraud. Worse, they’re a PCI Compliance nightmare.  In the event of a data breach, it’s likely impossible to prove compliance if you use them. Regardless of how secure and loyal you think your employees are, stuff happens and when identity theft related to credit cards occurs, your business has a 50% chance of survival.
