Sterling Payment Technologies, a national payment processor and provider of integrated payment solutions, announced today the completion of US EMV level 3 certification with Datacap Systems and the card brands.
The EMV-capable version of NETePay™ provides Sterling’s extensive network of point of sale providers with the ability to deliver US EMV functionality via an evolving list of PIN Pads through a simple out-of-scope interface.
Sterling NETePay is available via the Sterling/Datacap Usage Program, allowing dealers to provide NETePay via a “solution-as-a-service” model, therefore creating a recurring revenue stream without upfront investment or risk for the installer. Sterling will begin deploying the EMV-capable version of NETePay™ in the coming weeks.
“Sterling is proud to partner with Datacap to deliver a market-leading EMV solution that provides a reliable and secure payment option for merchants. This offering provides our reseller partners with the same attractive rental models, rapid deployment and advanced technical support that our other Datacap products have demonstrated for many years,” said Gary Staub, chief sales and marketing officer at Sterling.
The initial EMV-capable release of NETePay is certified to utilize the VX 805 PIN Pad from Verifone that supports EMV, MSR, PIN and NFC contactless transactions. Additional hardware options supporting signature capture, unattended applications, and mobile solutions will be released shortly via subsequent re-certifications.
“We’re excited to announce the release of a US EMV-enabled version of NETePay for Sterling," reports Justin Zeigler, marketing director at Datacap Systems. “Datacap and Sterling have worked cooperatively for years to provide the channel with an ‘as-a-service’ payments solution allowing ISVs and VARs to earn recurring revenue on each installation. The addition of US EMV support in NETePay will ensure that POS providers keep pace with the evolving payments landscape.”
