EMV Chip Cards

By now, you probably know about the changes in the payment processing industry as it relates to EMV "chip" credit cards.

You can get an EMV Credit Card Terminal today through the Professional Solutions Credit Card Processing Program. This terminal also accepts chip credit cards, Apply Pay & other "contactless" payments from your customers.

 What is the Fraud Liability Shift?
The card associations (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express) dictated a fraud liability shift effective October 1, 2015. In short, this means if a merchant doesn't have the proper EMV processing equipment and they are presented with an EMV "chip" card for payment, the liability for any fraud resulting from that transaction shifts from the card issuer to the merchant.

Once EMV software is approved and certified, what happens next? 
The goal is to avoid hassles with our merchants having to download multiple "fixes" due to EMV software bugs. Once EMV software is certified and working properly, Professional Solutions will provide the required software to you. In most cases a simple download of the new software will allow you to accept EMV cards. If you are a merchant that signed up with us in the last 24 months, you already have the EMV-capable terminal or equipment necessary to process EMV transactions once the required software is certified and available from the processors. Upon EMV software certification, we will contact you immediately regarding next steps. If your terminal is not currently EMV-capable, we'll be in touch to exchange it with new, pre-programmed EMV equipment so you can simply plug it in and begin using it once the software deployment occurs.
