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.
