  8. How To Make Money Off EMV Today
    7/18/2014

    Most merchants are laser-focused on doing one thing: selling their wares. POS terminals and payment processing only gain mindshare when they stand to help the merchants sell more or threaten to lose money. While EMV is important and something retailers are going to have to deal with, the deadline for compliance is still far enough on the horizon that merchants who are aware of it aren’t feeling much urgency to spend money to update their payment infrastructures. And, of course, there are plenty of merchants who are unaware of EMV and the deadline. So, if merchants aren’t feeling the urgency of the deadline, how can VARs make money off EMV now?

  9. The Payment Industry’s Perspective On EMV
    7/18/2014

    “EMV is designed to authenticate the validity of the payment card presented at each POS, which it does very well, so there really are no shortcomings. It can do it offline and online; it’s very versatile and very configurable. Critics say it doesn’t do anything for e-commerce, but that’s because EMV isn’t designed for e-commerce. It’s specifically designed for a cardpresent transaction. The e-commerce environment has different needs, and there are various solutions available to mitigate fraud losses in that environment.” — Allen Friedman, director of payment solutions, Ingenico Group

    7/18/2014

    Like VARs, ISVs have the tough task of trying to make sense of the official information (or lack thereof) concerning EMV. However, while VARs can take the (not advisable) wait-and-see approach, ISVs need to ensure they aren’t caught with a solution that lacks EMV capabilities when the time arrives. Additionally, ISVs will have to spend some time and money working on their EMV integrations. If you’re an ISV trying to determine your next steps regarding EMV and payment security, check out the following advice from other ISVs.
