Creditcall recently announced that it is the first payment gateway provider to support EMV in the U.S. ahead of the October 2015 migration deadline.
“With EMV migration imminent in the U.S. it’s vital that companies have trusted, experienced partners they can work with to manage the change,” Creditcall CTO Jeremy Gumbley said. “We’ve helped countries and companies migrate to EMV for more than 10 years including in the U.K. and Russia. Becoming the first EMV-ready payment gateway in the U.S. is further validation of our expertise and our position as pioneers at the forefront of EMV migration.”
The announcement comes just after an agreement with Moneris positioned Creditcall as the first payment gateway to process EMV transactions for retailers in Canada. Moneris is one of the largest payment processing providers in North America, processing more than three billion debit and credit transactions for over 350,000 merchants in North America.
The company plans to showcase the first live EMV transactions in the U.S. at the Electronic Transactions Association’s Transact 14 conference next week. Creditcall will demonstrate ChipDNA, its EMV migration solution for Windows and Linux, on Ingenico and VeriFone PIN pads using Moneris’ processing platform.
“As a North American leader in EMV, we are proud to have partnered with Creditcall, bringing EMV capability to their solutions in the attended and unattended retail markets,” Chris Lee, the president of North American strategic partnerships and emerging markets for Moneris, said. “We led the establishment of EMV in Canada, and will continue to provide this expertise to partners and merchants in the U.S. market.”
