CreditCall unveils new EMV and mPOS solutions at CARTES 2013
New EMV and mPOS payment solutions will smooth access to revenues, says CreditCall's Ingrid Anusic
In the US from October 2015, any merchant who has not completed migration to EMV-certified chipcard payment will have to carry the cost of any fraudulent transaction that it attempts to process.
At CARTES 2013, and in order to help merchants de-risk and meet what is generally held to be an aggressive in-service deadline for change at a national level, multi-channel payment gateway specialist CreditCall is launching ChipDNA. This is a unique bundle, available to acquirers, processors and VARs, which deals with all intermediate payment levels on behalf of the merchant, according to the company’s Head of Marketing, Ingrid Anusic.
“ChipDNA is designed to make migration simple. Merchants needn’t worry about EMV knowledge, integration or certification – it’s all taken care of,” she says.
This is all in line with the company’s philosophy of making payment acceptance simple from any device, anywhere. CreditCall will also be highlighting developments in mobile Point of Sale (mPOS), where solutions which have become common among SMEs are now making their presence felt in the retail sector. “It’s been possible for a little while now for artisans, such as plumbers and electricians working in people’s homes, to process payments on the move, rather than use cash or cheques.
Retail has lagged behind to an extent but there is a trend to have customers pay where they are, rather than have them move to a till. Our SDK toolkit allows solution developers to add EMV-certified mPOS card acceptance within an iOS or Android business app, increasing user convenience and opening access to ongoing revenue streams from referral payments,” says Anust.
