Qualified Integrators and Resellers certification reflects compliance with all security standards, while new websites detail payment gateways and virtual merchant services, Point of Sale USA reports
Santa Fe, NM -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/12/2015 -- Point of Sale USA has obtained certification under the PCI Security Standards Council's Qualified Integrators and Resellers (QIR) program. The newly obtained certification establishes that Point of Sale USA consistently adheres to current best practices under the PCI Data Security Standard, protecting the important financial data that passes through the systems the company installs.
In addition, Point of Sale USA has launched two specialized new websites. The first, at http://paymentgateway.services, provides information abut Payment Gateway Services, while the second, online now at http://www.virtualmerchantservices.com focuses on Virtual Merchant Services.
"We're proud to announce that we have obtained the universally respected QIR certification from the PCI Security Standards Council," Point of Sale USA owner Jason Feemster said, "This is an important step for us and our customers, and it reflects our commitment to providing the best in point of sale service and systems. We're also happy to report that we've just put two new websites online. We're confident that they are going to be of great value to those interested in payment gateways or virtual merchant services."
Every merchant, batch processor, financial institution, or other entity that deals with payment cards issued by major providers like Visa, MasterCard, and American Express is required to adhere to defined processes in doing so. These requirements are established and enforced by an industry-financed group known as the Payment Card Industries Security Standards Council and are meant to keep card details and other financial information safe.
Toward this end, the PCI Security Standards Council offers a number of training and certification programs, each aimed at different kinds of payment card industry organizations. The Council's Qualified Integrators and Resellers certification targets those, like Point of Sale USA, who sell and install point-of-sale systems meant to uphold the PCI DSS standards.
In acquiring the certification, Point of Sale USA becomes recognized as especially capable of protecting clients from system compromises and other events that could endanger the security of payment card information. As a top supplier and installer of systems like the popular Lavu iPad POS, Point of Sale USA consistently works with clients to arrive at POS solutions that best suit their needs and protect the data of their customers.
The awarding of the company's just-obtained QIR certification includes an exclusive listing at the PCI Security Standards Council's website, making it easy for those needing expert, secure POS installations to get in touch. In conjunction with the new certification, Point of Sale USA has also launched two new specialized websites of its own to supplement the company's main site.
The new site at http://www.PaymentGatewayServices.com provides an introduction to and detail about payment gateway services like Authorize.net that are used by merchants to accept credit and debit card payments. The other new site, at http://www.VirtualMerchantServices.com, centers around virtual merchant services, a flexible alternative to traditional merchant accounts.
The new websites are now online, and those interested can also learn more about Point of Sale USA's many services on its original site at http://www.posusa.com
