Apriva Bringing EMV Technology to the Gas Pump
While retailers are beginning to scan EMV credit cards at the register, consumers still need to swipe their cards at the gas pump. Apriva and Global Payments are working to change that.
Apriva announced they have completed EMV certification with Global Payments for Globalcom Enginerings BV1000 device, which is connected through the Apriva Gateway. This certification will allow customers to pay using their EMV card at unattended retail environments, including self-service parking, gas pumps and car wash stations.
The BV1000, which accepts all major card brands, was also built so they can withstand the extreme weather conditions in these environments.
“Unattended solutions should offer end-users the safety, security and choice in how they want to pay,” said Stacey Finley Tappin, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Communications at Apriva. “This latest EMV certification builds on our partnerships with both Global Payments and Globalcom to deliver more choices to unattended vendors and their customers throughout the U.S.”
Apriva already works with more than 35 payment processors and 1,100 merchant acquirers and ISOs in North America. They help clients create point-of-sales solutions that work with credit, debit, EBT, loyalty and closed-loop payment processing.
