Ascert has released a new version of its VersaTest Driver for China UnionPay (CUP) to support the latest mandates for the protocol. The driver supports both functional and performance testing and is available for standalone use with VersaTest Simulator, or with VersaTest Automator, for more complex, integrated testing environments.

“We’ve had a large number of new subscribers to the new version of the Union Pay Host Driver over the last several months,” said Mike Wainwright, Business Development Director in Ascert’s EMEA operation. “Its continued growth worldwide with an emphasis in Southeast Asia has been a driving demand factor for testing.”

Union Pay continues it exponential growth in 2016 with over 58 million cards issued in 40 countries outside of mainland China. The advent of Apple Pay and Samsung Pay utilizing UnionPay’s QuickPass technology in China has enabled the company to recapture market share and has contributed to the increased popularity of the brand. The new UnionPay Driver from Ascert has been included in the rapidly expanding VersaTest library of drivers for use on-premise and in the Ascertified cloud based testing service. The new driver assists merchants and service providers to test transactions in preparation for certification.
