PCI DSS EMV Apple Pay and NFC Certified
ProphetLine has been fully PCI DSS compliant for years. We actually built all the security into our product before there was a mandate. We long ago finished the EMV chip card requirements and are certified for chip card processing.
It should be comforting for you to know that ProphetLine and Vantiv/Mercury Payment Systems are your partners in data security for small retailers. You have better security than the big retailers at no cost to you. Everything for security and encryption is built into the credit, debit, EMV and gift card functionality. The only thing you pay is the normal merchant service fees, which are extremely low with Vantiv/Mercury. This should be one of the major points of your buying decision for new POS/Retail Software. Can you really afford the penalties, fines and customer dissatisfaction if you are not totally secure?
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a proprietary information security standard for companies that handle branded credit cards from the major card schemes including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB.
EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard, and Visa, the three companies that originally created the standard.
