Datacap Releases Certified First Data US EMV Solution for Point of Sale

Datacap and First Data VX 805

Chalfont, PA - Datacap Systems, a leading integrated payments middleware provider, has completed US EMV level 3 certification with First Data via their Rapid Connect® platform. An EMV-capable version of NETePay™ has been released and is available for download immediately.  NETePay for First Data provides hundreds 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.

The initial EMV-capable release of NETePay for First Data 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 that covers multiple First Data platforms”, reports Justin Zeigler, marketing director at Datacap Systems. “Providing our POS partners with installation flexibility is our core value proposition, so the First Data Rapid Connect integration that encompasses multiple platforms is the ideal path forward.”

First Data’s Rapid Connect integration supports multiple processing platforms including First Data Cardnet, Nashville and BuyPass, providing a more flexible solution to installers and merchants. First Data is at the forefront of EMV expertise and readiness as the company has been producing EMV-enabled cards and processing EMV transactions for years.

NETePay allows dealers to provide integrated payment via a “solution-as-a-service” model, therefore creating a recurring revenue stream without upfront investment or risk for the installer. Of course, authorized Datacap resellers can purchase NETePay outright as well.

Merchants are encouraged to contact their POS reseller to see how Datacap payment solutions can help with transaction processing and enhanced cardholder security. If your Point of Sale package isn’t yet integrated to Datacap’s payment interfaces, contact us today to get started!
