EMV Card Payments for uniCenta oPOS
Both posApps Digital Receipt and posApps Pay are wrapped into our Plugin Manager and in true uniCenta oPOS tradition both come free.
posApps plugins are designed to extend uniCenta oPOS in such a way that keeps everything as lean as possible. They do away with the need to keep adding more and more unnecessary or little used functionality to your POS system.
This is what we set out to achieve with posApps Pay:
1. Enable uniCenta oPOS users to quickly and painlessly install a card payment option
2. Provide a best-of-breed secure pre-Certified PCI/EMV compliant solution
3. Reduce Merchants’ risk and card processing costs
We introduced posApps Pay secure PCI/EMV Card Payments for uniCenta oPOS version 3.91 back in July 2015.
We’re happy to announce – May 2017 – that uniCenta oPOS 4.3 users in UK, Eire, USA and Canada can now accept secure EMV chip card payments with the posApps Pay plugin.
Our plugin uses the next generation of card payment devices and payment services by using secure pre-certified PCI/EMV compliance Mobile Payment Enabled – mPed for short – devices and Cloud Payment Gateways.
Heard about the liability shift?
Any merchant not accepting EMV chip cards and who continue to rely on swiping cards is putting their business at risk. Simply put any card fraud happening on a swiped card means you suffer the loss and can suffer a hefty penalty too!
UK & Europe, along with some other parts of the world, have enjoyed the confidence and security that chip cards bring for quite some time. It is the USA who is experiencing the biggest shift to gain compliance as they move from Magnetic Stripe cards to full EMV.
It is that looming 2018 deadline which spurred us on to deliver posApps Pay in good time for merchants to adopt and adapt. And, do it quickly.
