"With Peoples Trust and Integrated Card Exchange, we are bringing merchants state-of-the-art payment products that support the specific business and technical requirements of the Canadian market," said Brent Smith, Hypercom Country Manager, Canada.
Hypercom's chip and PIN-enabled T4210 and T4220 payment terminals for the Canadian market enable full domestic processing support. Both terminals have received EMV certification from the Interac Association, Canada's national debit card program, allowing merchants to accept the popular Interac debit cards at their establishments.
