First Data regularly publishes a list of certified integrated partner solutions as well as delisted certifications. ERP and other product developers involving payments should monitor this list to ensure compliance for their merchants.
Reasons for delisting include the version is no longer PCI Compliant or doesn’t meet some other processing requirement; a replacement certified version may be available, but that is not always the case, nor are merchants always current with the latest vendor software that has the certified payment gateway connection.
First Data Integrated Partner Solution delisting details:
• 3Delta Systems product EC-Suite Gateway is no longer boarding new merchants. 3Delta has replaced the EC-Suite with Payment Works Suite.
• Sage Payment Gateway – delisted May 2015, see notes for details. No corresponding certified product is listed under the company name Sage.
• Fiscal Systems, Inc. products Travstar1 and Travstar1/NEDOS v 9.1.0 are no longer available for boarding new clients. Travstar1/NEDOS v 10.00.01 is certified.
Other products with versions delisted this year include Counterpoint, USAePay, Retail.net, and Aloha EDC. Merchants using Saas product solutions continually have the latest integrated version and can avoid issues related to expired gateway certifications, which may not be readily shared with the parties that need to know.
Another tab on the document lists certified partner solutions, including who’s EMV certified today and for what equipment.

Prospective CenPOS customers and developer partners often ask how is CenPOS different than the existing integrated gateways. The First Data certifications list is a simple way to compare some technical items. For example, 3Delta is certified for level III processing, but not international or retail.
The list for certifications may be imperfect, though the EMV certifications is likely accurate as this is a hot button that developers are needing current data for. This post has been updated to remove links since First Data removed the related published document.
