Two companies have come together to provide EMV chip-card acceptance to cloud-based merchants, unattended kiosk manufacturers, retailers, and mobile merchants. ID TECH and Worldnet have received EMV certification through First Data.
The certification using the GoChip EMV SDK encompasses all the ID TECH’s products that incorporate the ID TECH Common Kernel.
GoChip supports traditional POS as well as iOS and Android operating systems for mobile and tablet POS merchants and is available for Windows Desktop, Apple OS, iOS, Android, Windows Mobile 8.1 and Java.
The Worldnet payment solution supports ID TECH’s EMV products, including the Augusta, for fixed POS workstations, the MiniSmart II for purpose-built mobile POS terminals and the Spectrum Pro for unattended kiosk solutions. For merchants looking for a P2PE validated solution, Worldnet will also support the Augusta S (SRED certified version).
Jason Hall, Product Manager, said: "ID TECH is excited about being able to offer EMV End to End certification through Worldnet to our hardware customers. There is now a simple cost-effective solution for customers looking to take EMV transactions.”
John Clarke, Head of Product Innovation, Worldnet commented: “The combination of the Worldnet ‘GoChip’ payment solution and ID TECH’s hardware provides merchants with a pre-certified payment path, making the transition to EMV quick, cost effective and seamless. This partnership will yield a fast and efficient solution for key players in the payment industry including ISV’s, retailers, mobile merchants, kiosk operators, and the software delivery community.”
