Collis upgrades Visa payWave test tool

10 May 2010  |  5275 views  |  0 Source: Collis

Prior to being released into the market, contactless terminals that bear the Visa payWave indicator must undergo sufficient testing to prove that they adhere to the latest Visa (Europe) specifications.

The Visa payWave Test Tool - developed by Collis and Visa Europe - is a portable and officially confirmed test tool that allows such testing.

The newest version of Visa payWave Test Tool (Version 2.0) has been upgraded to enhance current functionality and includes the implementation of the most recent Visa Contactless Payment System functionality (VCPS 2.1). Included in the new functionality are sections on Reader Dynamic Limits, Consumer Device CVM Processing and VCPS Version Processing. In addition to this, two new card profiles have been introduced to address the type of cryptogram that is returned during a refund transaction. The new Visa payWave Test Tool is also capable to select subsets of test cases based on the compliance statement functionality; such as Online only, Contactless only, Online PIN, etc. In other words the Visa payWave Test Tool can now run (if required) only the tests relevant to a specific terminal.

Neil Dickson, Head of Chip Integration - Visa Europe, comments "The Visa payWave Test Tool is the primary mechanism to confirm Visa Europe's implementation requirements to the Visa Contactless Payments Specification. This latest version embraces the new and exciting features now available in VCPS 2.1 and gives our member banks the opportunity to utilise these. Ensuring that there is a tool available to confirm this functionality is fundamental to our philosophy of self-certification. The VpTT has been designed to produce reports that will allow a detailed view of a contactless reader's capabilities both for development and deployment."

Berend van Geffen, Chief Commercial Officer adds: "Releasing version 2.0 of Visa payWave Test Tool demonstrates Collis' commitment in having the most up-to-date and innovative test tools in the market today. This new version of VpTT gives Visa Europe member banks, vendors and field engineers the ability and complete control in speeding up terminal certification according to Visa Europe's latest specifications. It also gives them confidence in knowing that the certified terminals that are released into the field have been tested to the highest standard."
