Wayne Fueling Systems, a global provider of fuel dispensing, payment, automation, and control technologies for retail and commercial fuel stations, has been certified by First Data to accept EMV® credit and debit card transactions. 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.
EMV is the global standard created by EuroPay, MasterCard, and Visa to securely authenticate credit and debit card transactions. To be compliant with payment network EMV requirements, fuel retailers are encouraged to upgrade indoor point-of-sale (POS) software and hardware by October 2015, and outdoor pay-at-the-pump equipment by October 2017.
The certification is for the Wayne Fusion™ site automation server which is packaged with the Wayne NAMOS™ POS system and also can be applied to other third party POS systems.
“We’re proud to be the industry leader having been certified by First Data and in the position to help our customers move to EMV technology and regulatory compliance,” noted Wayne CEO, Neil Thomas.
