Your EMV needs are covered with EZswitch® 

emvchipSupport of Integrated Circuit Cards (ICC), commonly referred to as smart cards, and the Europay, MasterCard, Visa (EMV) standards that govern their use is continuing its rapid deployment around the world to supplement and eventually replace the magnetic stripe card. EMVCo (www.emvco.com) was formed in 1999 to manage, maintain and enhance the EMV Integrated Circuit Card Specifications for payment systems. EMV standards play an important role in ensuring that cards, terminals and systems successfully interact wherever they are in the world.

  • Issue EMV cards. Mark existing mag-stripe cards for EMV issuance and notify the EFT network or card production vendor using a common class field to designate EMV.
  • Monitor EMV-based transactions. Transactions processed in EZswitch will receive values during processing that indicate whether the transaction was processed using the EMV chip or mag-stripe. These indicators can be searched and reviewed from EZswitch G4 web-based tools or System Monitor client. A chip icon is reflected in the client when processed using the chip.
  • Build fallback and offline PIN rules. Where EZswitch is setup to issue the EMV chip-card, rules are established to specify when the system will permit fallback (allowing the merchant to use the magstripe instead of the chip), or offline PIN (allowing PIN validation to be performed locally between the card and terminal).
  • Issuer processing scripts. The ability to send commands from processing system to the chip card to perform changes to risk parameters, programs, encryption keys, or other variables maintained on the chip card. EZswitch offers a client application where chip-card changes can be pushed to the card.
