NCR Corporation, a global leader in omni-channel solutions, today announced it has received certification for outdoor EMV solutions with Wayne Fueling Systems (Wayne), part of Dover Fueling Solutions and a global provider of fuel dispensing, payment, automation and control technologies for retail and commercial fuel stations. The certification covers NCR Epsilon, which enables credit and debit EMV transactions for the NCR RPOS and StorePoint POS solutions.

The Wayne iX Pay™ payment platform has consistently been the first to meet the industry’s rigorous regulatory demands to help deliver an increased level of payment security. By having an NCR outdoor EMV certified solution, retailers who encounter high risk fraud and have locations subject to high fraud rules can implement EMV payments outdoors and help reduce their exposure to chargeback expenses.

“EMV certification of our payment solution enables us to enhance the outdoor customer experience by providing shoppers with more secure payment transactions and helping to protect them from fraud,” said Tom Chittenden, vice president and general manager of retail solutions at NCR Corporation. “Our solution uses an open platform that allows us to make software changes as new technology and additional forms of payment become available. Migrating to EMV in automatic fuel dispensers early is a smart business move for Convenience and Fuel retailers that affords them greater control over budgeting, planning, and deploying equipment upgrades on a timeline that supports their objectives.”

NCR’s strategy as a hardware-enabled, software-driven business is to provide unified commerce offerings that converge point of service, loyalty, mobility, eCommerce and payments so retailers can engage with consumers more securely in a variety of ways. With the NCR OPTIC solution, fuel retailers can transform their business with a more engaging and consistent customer experience in the forecourt, accepting EMV payment at the pump while also bringing customers into the store for additional spend. The screens at the pumps can be used to promote rewards and enable loyalty program activation which can result in a quantifiable increase in revenue.

“As technology advances and financial data theft increases, protecting our customers from debit and credit card fraud has become a major priority for our business,” said Simon Siew, director of payment solutions at Wayne.

The payment processing host certification testing was completed by NCR Epsilon in September 2017, verifying that EMV cards are processed in accordance with the EMV Brand specifications of Mastercard, AMEX, VISA and Discover.
