Electronic Transfer, Inc. is one of the only Credit Card Processing Companies offering a new EMV Certified Credit Card Terminal for Merchants to Accept Credit Cards Using Apple Pay.
Spokane, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/21/2015 -- Electronic Transfer, Inc. is now offering a new EMV Chip Credit Card Terminal or Pin Pad to new merchants who sign up by May 4, 2015. The EMV Chip Card Credit Card Terminal supports Apple Pay, Pin Debit and the new Android Softcard payments.
EMV chip card transactions improve security against fraud compared to magnetic stripe card transactions that rely on the holder's signature and visual inspection of the card to check for features such as hologram. The use of a PIN and cryptographic algorithms such as Triple-DES, RSA and SHA provide authentication of the card to the processing terminal and the card issuer's host system. The processing time is comparable to online transactions, in which communications delay accounts for the majority of the time, while cryptographic operations take comparatively little time. The supposed increased protection from fraud has allowed banks and credit card issuers to push through a 'liability shift' such that merchants are now liable (as from 1 January 2005 in the EU region) for any fraud that results from transactions on systems that are not EMV capable."
Electronic Transfer Inc. offers full-service credit card processing for all types of merchants, providing the lowest available rates to all businesses equally. Merchants receive their rates based on credit card processing volume, and not on the products they sell.
On October 1, 2015, the card brands are implementing chargeback rule changes. Currently, when a counterfeit card is accepted by a merchant, the card issuer is responsible for the fraud loss. On October 1, 2015, the card-present counterfeit card liability will shift to the merchant if a chip card is presented but the point-of-sale system is not enabled to read the chip. This is NOT a compliance mandate; instead, accepting chip card transactions will limit a merchant's future chargeback exposure for certain types of card-present chargebacks.
Because of the liability shift everyone will need to have an EMV capable system and the processing Banks (acquirers) will strictly enforce this. Issuing Banks can still issue the old fashioned "Non-Chip" cards as long as they assume the fraud risk and merchants will still be able to process the old cards until 2017. However, most processing companies will access a surcharge on these cards and some will even change a hefty "Non-Compliance Fee" for using a non EMV Certified credit card terminal.
