Effective October 2015, a consortium of payment processors mandated the use of EMV technology by all merchants. Merchants that don’t implement EMV payment technology are subject to chargeback liability for fraudulent credit card use at their point of purchase. Please visit Visa for more information about the liability shift.

Best in class.
EMV (Europay, MasterCard, Visa) is the global standard for protecting against credit card fraud utilizing embedded chips. Unlike traditional swipe credit cards, EMV chip cards request a unique transaction ID from credit card merchants every time the chip card is used. This makes it nearly impossible for fraudulent activity to occur from duplicating and skimming cards. SoftTouch was among the first POS developers to implement a comprehensive EMV integration. Moreover, through partner agreements, we proudly offer an offline processing solution for EMV enabled merchants.
