Apriva, the leading provider of secure end-to-end wireless transaction processing solutions, today announced it has completed EMV certification with Global Payments for Ingenico’s Telium2 terminals connecting through the Apriva Gateway.
This full-featured certification includes the wireless iWL220 and iWL250, as well as the iCT220 and iCT250 countertop models. The certification spans all major card brands, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and U.S. Debit cards, and includes contactless transactions from Visa, MasterCard and American Express. This certification brings a wide range of payment options to merchants using these popular Ingenico terminals.
Ingenico’s wireless iWL220 and iWL250 terminals provide merchants with convenient portable devices that can go where the merchant needs them. The iCT220 and iCT250 are countertop models that can be configured to operate in either of two modes. First, it can operate as a traditional “stand-alone” payment terminal. Second, it can function as the payment device in a “semi-integrated” merchant POS solution, when combined with a tablet or other POS solution through Apriva’s Integration Services. Whatever the use case, these terminals maximize efficiency and are easy to use. They accept all popular forms of electronic payment, including mobile NFC and contactless cards, EMV chip cards, and magnetic stripe cards.
“Obtaining EMV certifications on the Apriva Gateway is crucial in order to bring the latest compliance technologies to our resellers’ merchants,” said Stacey Finley Tappin, senior vice president of North American Sales and Marketing Communications at Apriva. “Releasing EMV functionality on these various Ingenico devices on Global Payments is an essential step in our EMV migration process. We are working diligently to release all major terminal lines on our many processor connections.”
Ingenico is a world leader in payments technologies, operating over 27 million terminals across 170 countries worldwide.
