MagTek Introduces card-present EMV chip card payments for QwickPAY
Seal Beach, CA, October 11, 2018 - a global leader in retail electronic payments and security technology, today announces its mobile payments application, QwickPAY, now supports card-present EMV chip card transactions. With this update, merchants will be able to leverage MagTek's payment application certification (L3) with leading processors for EMV system compliance and continue to use QwickPAY for magstripe payment acceptance.
Obtaining L3 certification to support EMV transactions can be cost prohibitive for merchants and ISVs. MagTek has undertaken the effort and cost with QwickPAY and supports an array of leading processors. MagTek's is EMV certified with First Data Merchant Services (FDC) Nashville/North, TSYS, and Worldpay with Chase and Elavon certification on the horizon for late 2018.
"We are excited to offer EMV chip card capability with QwickPAY," said John Arato, General Manager and Vice President of Retail Solutions. "It gives our resellers and distributors a great value-add in a really easy format to onboard. Their customers can be up and running in a matter of days instead of weeks."
To perform card-present transactions with QwickPAY, including magnetic stripe and EMV transactions, merchants can utilize eDynamo or DynaPro devices for either mobile or virtual terminal applications. Other MagTek EMV card reading devices will be added in the 4th quarter of 2018.
