"At PaymentCollect, transaction security and customer satisfaction are our top priority.”
Asheville, NC (PRWEB) January 15, 2015
We’re ready for EMV, are you? The EMV deadline of October 2015 is approaching and PaymentCollect has already integrated its premier QuickBooks Plug-In solutions with EMV-ready terminal solutions for QuickBooks POS merchants.
With the recent announcements of breaches at Sony, Home Depot and ChargeAnywhere, QuickBooks merchants are realizing an urgent need for better payment security. PaymentCollect accelerated its security developments early in preparation for EMV with this new integration to offer greater protection to QuickBooks merchants and obviate the need to buy hardware for payment processing now and then replace it soon after.
"At PaymentCollect, transaction security and customer satisfaction are our top priority,” stated Philip Holan, CEO of PaymentCollect. “We felt that if we waited until the deadline with our EMV-ready initiatives, we'd leave a gap for merchants who might need to make hardware purchases now and then incur in additional costs for EMV adoption later. We wanted to eliminate that gap as soon as possible. Now, the moment that processors are ready, heightened security will happen like the flip of a switch for our merchants.”
PaymentCollect’s integration-encrypted EMV terminals provide higher security protection by preventing merchants’ computers from touching, storing, or transmitting sensitive card data. This direct integration seamlessly enables the customer to make a payment on the credit card terminal for a transaction created in QuickBooks POS. The transaction results are posted directly, accurately and in real-time back into the QuickBooks Sales Receipt – thereby protecting both the customer and the merchant.
These EMV terminals are certified to EMV Level 1&2 and PCI v3.1. This means that once the merchant’s acquirer is ready for EMV payment processing, the specific EMV parameters can be quickly and easily downloaded to the merchant’s EMV Terminals. Another benefit of PaymentCollect’s integration to these EMV terminals is Near Frequency Communication (NFC) for non-contact cell phone payments such as Apple Pay™.
