VeriFone Systems, Inc. (PAY), announced today that its UX Solutions series of unattended payment devices has achieved an industry-first certification to Canada's first and only contactless debit payment solution, the Interac Flash 1.5 contactless payment specifications.
MSC, a VeriFone distribution partner that provides solutions for the entire unattended market in Canada and the U.S., has selected devices within the UX series to support its next-generation EMV capable, PCI compliant unattended payments solution which will include support for Interac Flash transactions.
Interac products and services securely connect people to their money through Interac® Cash at the ABM, Interac Debit for point-of-sale purchases across Canada and at more than 2 million U.S. retailers through Cross Border Debit, Interac Online for web-based purchases, and Interac e-Transfer® for person-to-person payments. Interac Flash, the secure contactless enhancement of Interac Debit, is in widespread use at retailers across Canada and provides the platform for mobile NFC proximity payments.
UX Solutions is a series of unattended payment devices from VeriFone that enables merchants to meet growing consumer demand for self-service transactions by providing customizable payment systems that securely increase transaction volume and speed and accept payments from mobile wallets, mag-stripe cards as well as contactless and contact-based EMV. The devices can be integrated with unattended solutions such as kiosks, vending machines, public transportation ticketing and other unattended, high-transaction-volume environments.
"UX Solutions are an ideal first implementation of the Interac Flash contactless payment system," said Shan Ethridge, vice president and general manager, North America Financial Services Group, VeriFone.
