New technology from Verifone and First Data is making it easier for convenience retailers to become EMV compliant.
Migrating to EMV payment acceptance in the U.S. often requires merchants to spend considerable time and resources to certify point of sale (POS) systems with each of their processors. Gas stations and convenience stores face even greater complexity because they typically rely on their POS systems to manage other operations besides payments.
Faster Path to EMV Acceptance Inside Gas Stations & Convenience Stores
Fortunately, Commander Site Controller from Verifone, a world leader in payments and commerce solutions, is now certified for EMV acceptance with First Data’s Rapid Connect, which will expedite gas stations’ and convenience stores’ ability to deploy in-store EMV payment systems with First Data.
The fastest site controller in petro, Commander Site Controller increases speed for payment acceptance, fueling operations and back office control while separating payment, fuel and POS software for easier management and remote upgrades.
“Commander Site Controller simplifies all aspects of convenience store and retail petroleum operations management,” said Dan Yienger, senior vice president and general manager of Petroleum for Verifone. “Certification with First Data’s solution, which streamlines application testing, certification and delivery, enables Commander to further reduce complexity for gas stations and convenience stores by providing a speedier path to in-store EMV acceptance and simplifying their ability to keep payment systems up-to-date with EMV software updates.”
