The staff at RPS is ramping up for the EMV changes coming to each and every one of us. Please be aware of some of the sales pitches other companies are peddling this time of year. We will be contacting you, our customers, to consult on the best option for your business to accept EMV and NFC (Contactless) payments in 2015. Payment Processing is a very cut throat industry and with the current EMV (Europay, MasterCard, Visa) card changes, sales companies are using mis-information to try and persuade businesses to change processors. We at RPS want to make sure our customers know about a few of the current sales calls.
1. “Your terminal is not EMV capable so you must change and upgrade immediately!” – This is not true for all businesses. The current timeline is still 11 months out for terminals to be updated, or Pin Pads added. We have a commitment to our customers to make sure that when the time is here that we will help update the necessary piece of equipment to help maintain your processing.
2. “Your business is not PCI-Compliant!” – This is a common pitch used to persuade merchants as well. PCI Compliancy is important to stay on top of and with both Panoptic and Rapid Comply we help our merchants stay up to date with their compliancy.
If you have any questions regarding your terminals, current programs or anything in general please do not hesitate to call RPS at (541) 665-4855 or toll free 1(877)777-0696.
