Developers and integrators gain instant access to EMV-chip card payments for their own point of sale (POS) solutions using Ingenico Group’s smart terminals

New York, February 17, 2016 Creditcall, the EMV-ready omni-channel payment gateway and EMV Kernel provider, today announced it has been certified by First Data (NYSE: FDC) a global leader in commerce-enabling technology and solutions, to accept EMV™ transactions via its PCI DSS Level 1 certified payment gateway using Ingenico Group’s iPP 320 smart terminal and ChipDNA, an EMV SDK for Windows and Linux. Ingenico Group is the global leader in seamless payment, and has led EMV migrations in dozens of countries.

“With this latest certification, Creditcall is up to three EMV certifications with First Data for multiple PINpads, which expands on the freedom of choice we provide to our ISV and developer partners,” said Lars Pedersen, CEO at Creditcall. “It lets our partners secure more opportunities, and grow faster.”

Providing choice and simplifying EMV for developers

ChipDNA is an EMV SDK that can be integrated by developers, ISVs and VARs into Windows and Linux semi-integrated environments in addition to iOS and Android based mPOS payment solutions. ChipDNA brings EMV chip-card acceptance to tablets, smartphones and traditional PINpads, as well as eCommerce. It comes with a comprehensive reporting and management tool, a terminal management system (TMS) and point-to-point encryption (P2PE) for the highest level of cardholder data protection.

Ingenico Group’s iPP320 smart terminal is a consumer-facing PINpad device enabling retailers to quickly and securely accept all transactions that require a PIN, including credit/debit cards, EMV chip cards and NFC/contactless payments. Its compact design allows easy handling and requires minimum counter space, while its large backlit keypad and LCD display provide consumers with a seamless checkout experience.

“We’re continuing to see significant demand from developers, ISVs, and VARs for solutions that can help ease the transition to EMV, and Creditcall’s combined ChipDNA/Ingenico Group offering fits the bill perfectly, providing an EMV-ready solution that can easily integrate with their point of sale applications,” said Rod Hometh, Senior Vice President of Strategic Development, North America at Ingenico Group. “We’re looking forward to working with Creditcall and providing their partners with the tools they need to streamline the EMV migration process.”

ChipDNA is also approved with Visa Acquirer Device Validation Toolkit (ADVT), MasterCard Terminal Integration Process (M-TIP), American Express Integrated Circuit Card Payment Specification (AEIPS), and Discover Payment Application Specification (D-PAS).

In addition to the most recent certification with Ingenico Group’s iPP320 PINpad terminal, Creditcall has already gained EMV certifications with First Data and Chase Paymentech for the Verifone VX 820 PINpad and with First Data with the Miura M010 for mobile POS (mPOS).
