Canadian Retail Solutions (CRS) is now able to offer its flagship Retail Pro POS Software integrated with YESpay International’s end to end EMV Chip and PIN accredited and PCI-DSS Level 1 certified managed payment service called EMBOSS.

Canadian Retail Solutions (CRS) specializes in Point of Sale (POS) Systems for small to mid-sized Canadian merchants operating in multi-store environments. Already integrated and rolled out with merchants in UK, Retail Pro is now available in Canada. Integrated with EasyV-Retail, Retail Pro now constitutes a unique proposition for inventory management as well as EMV Chip and PIN and magnetic stripe credit and debit card acceptance and processing for merchants operating from estates of all sizes. Canadian merchants will have to upgrade their EPOS tills to be able to handle EMV Chip and PIN card transactions by the liability shift date of October 2010. This proposition in fact relieves merchants from deploying and maintaining an in-house payment solution as well as undergoing formal end-to-end bank testing and managing PCI-DSS compliance. Outsourcing payment processing considerably cuts the costs associated with bank accreditation and compliance with PCI-DSS requirements; moreover, by using YESpay’s solution, merchants only have to pay a low monthly fee while there is no major upfront capital expenditure. YESpay’s EMBOSS payment gateway for EMV card processing is already pre-accredited with Chase Payment and First Data Merchant Services and PCI-DSS Level 1 compliant. This makes Retail Pro integrated with EasyV-Retail a ‘ready to use’ ‘off the shelf’ product that can actually be rolled out in a retail environment in a matter of days.

Canadian Retail Solutions (CRS) chose to integrate with EMBOSS after extensive research and their own internal development of EFT solutions. CRS truly understands the value of a secure, easy to use and well-supported solution specific to the unique Canadian retail environment. Scott Smith, General Manager at Canadian Retail Solutions, noted that “having worked with many different EFT models over the years and we are very impressed with the architecture of the YESpay solution. Their commitment specifically to the Canadian market is something we look for in all of our chosen partners and solutions. YESpay is committed to providing a solution that gives our clients choice, value, ease of use and security.” ?

The EMBOSS payment gateway is already well established in the UK and Europe as a generically certified IP-based payment processing service and UK and European based companies have been using YESpay payment processing service for over 5 years. Through EMBOSS, merchants can fast track the implementation of integrated EMV card payments acceptance solutions for their electronic cash register, kiosks and hospitality payment systems. It can also enhance their websites for on-line payments with minimal capital investment and low ongoing costs. EMBOSS reduces business and technical issues of outsourcing payment services and helps merchants avoid lengthy timescales and high costs of EMV certification and PCI compliance of their retail environments. Fully scalable, EMBOSS can address the needs of the single location merchant as well as larger chains with 100s of stores.

Rahul Garg, Regional Manager Canada at YESpay International adds “We are delighted to be able to offer a truly pre-accredited payment service and help merchants enjoy a fast, reliable, pre-accredited but also inexpensive service. As our first terminals are up and running in Canada, we are very excited with the acceptance of our service in the Canadian market and at the same time committed to continue to assist merchants with their payment requirements”.
