Adoption is now exploding because of this successful partnership and the increasing need to adopt Chip and PIN in Canada as a result of the EMV liability shift.
Toronto, Canada (PRWEB UK) 27 April 2011
A growing number of merchants in Canada and USA are now Live and EMV Chip & PIN enabled thanks to the trio: Pacific Amber Technologies, YESpay International and Chase Paymentech! Since 2010, merchants using AmberPOS are able to process EMV Chip & PIN transactions via YESpay’s fully EMV and PCI-DSS certified payment solution, EMBOSSTM. Adoption is now exploding because of this successful partnership and the increasing need to adopt Chip and PIN in Canada as a result of the EMV liability shift.
With live merchants all across North America, Pacific Amber Technologies constitutes a reliable and valuable partner to both YESpay and Chase Paymentech resulting in the successful national rollout of merchants of all sizes. All three parties are working closely together to be at the front of emerging cutting-edge technologies and to offer the fastest time to market and low-cost EMV payment solution possible to merchants.
Validated for EasyV-Retail, YESpay’s EMV card-present payment solution, Pacific Amber Technologies is offering a unique proposition for EMV Chip and PIN and magnetic stripe credit and debit card acceptance in North America with Chase Paymentech as the processor. Live merchants like House of Knives and John Fluevog have been EMV enabled this year and are currently using this joint solution.
With the need to offer multi-channel payment services, Pacific Amber is also integrating EasyV-Internet (YESpay’s e-commerce payment solution) to expand its payment service proposition to provide its customers with an e-commerce payment platform.
Both EasyV-Internet and EasyV-Retail support credit and debit card tokenization for free. These unique ‘Tokens’ or card reference numbers which are linked to individual cardholder details stored in PCI DSS certified EMBOSS data centres, enables merchants to perform marketing functions or make recurring / subscription payments without access to full cardholder details.
By utilizing YESpay’s EMV pre-accredited and PCI-DSS certified payment solution, Canadian and US merchants running AmberPOS software are taking advantage of the most cost effective payment service, that securely processes and settles transactions with Chase Paymentech via YESpay’s dual data centres. All major EMV credit and debit cards are supported with the EasyV-Retail solution including Visa, MasterCard, Interac, Maestro, Amex, Diners and more. EasyV-Retail also supports on-line PIN validation for both Canadian Interac debit card transactions as well as US magnetic debit transactions.
As Harry Morge, National Sales Manager at YESpay explains, “This strong partnership with Pacific Amber and Chase Paymentech is really fruitful, and is now taking another dimension. Indeed, the merchant base is growing every month, and we jointly assist merchants in both USA and Canada. Pacific Amber will leverage another channel supported by YESpay, namely e-commerce, thus offering a multi-channel solution to its merchants. I am looking forward to continuing developing this relationship!”
For over 15 years, Pacific Amber Technologies has established a proven track record of successfully helping hundreds of retailers across North America. Pacific Amber Technologies chose to integrate with YESpay in order to offer to its customers a managed and multi-channel, pre-accredited payment service at a low monthly cost.
Mike Piotrowski, President of Pacific Amber Technologies comments “The uniqueness of YESpay’s payment solution which is fully managed, multi-channel, cross-border and EMV certified, was the answer to our payment needs. We can now enable our numerous merchants to accept integrated payments, as part of our comprehensive point-of-sale solution which is gaining more and more traction in the market. AmberPOS has been a successful software for years and we are always looking for new ways to provide our customers with more features, including new payment processing options.”
