TC IPATM – Integrated Payment Application now supports U.S. EMV chip card transactions on the TSYS processing platform, in addition to other platforms.
SANTA ANA, California, January 11, 2017 — TrustCommerce®, leading provider of secure payment solutions, today announced EMV certification with the TSYS platform has been achieved on all four card brands. Merchants on the TSYS platform can now accept EMV credit and debit chip card transactions using TC IPATM – Integrated Payment Application and TC IPATM POS, in addition to other platforms.
“We are pleased to have completed our latest EMV certification with our long-standing partner TSYS,” said Rob Caulfield, Chief Executive Officer of TrustCommerce. “This recent certification continues our EMV journey and offers our clients greater choice when adopting EMV.”
TC IPA provides merchants with the tools to securely accept both EMV and non-EMV payments. With a semi‐integrated or standalone payment processing model, merchants can complete their EMV goals without the burden of having to go through a time consuming and costly EMV certification. By taking control of the transaction from the dip of the card to the final authorization, it eliminates the merchant’s responsibility for an EMV certification saving time and costs.
“EMV chip card acceptance is a complex and costly transition for merchants,” said Caulfield. “We are dedicated to making EMV transition smooth and seamless while reducing clients’ PCI footprint. We deliver this and more with TC IPA.”
Merchants can leverage TC IPA to address PCI compliance. TC IPA controls all aspects of the card transaction de-scoping other applications. The solution reduces, if not eliminates, PCI scope as the Primary Account Number (PAN) data will never go through the third‐party software. Information passed through the client network is encrypted and non‐readable.
TrustCommerce solutions offer many benefits, including:
- Multi-layered security which includes encryption and tokenization to guard against data breach.
- Bank and processor neutrality for maximum choice and portability.
- Greater PCI scope reduction.
TrustCommerce supports Ingenico Group’s Telium smart terminals for EMV transactions as well as its On Guard point-to-point encryption (P2PE) solution. With global expertise in EMV chip technology, Ingenico Group was selected due to the broad line of devices that share a common EMV kernel.
