GREENSBORO, N.C. — Gilbarco Veeder-Root, a payment security and EMV (Europay, Mastercard and Visa) security technology supplier, has deployed a software production release to enable full indoor and outdoor EMV support for Atlanta-based First Data generic networks.
Passport Version 11.02 is EMV software that enables full chip-card functionality outside on the forecourt as well as inside the store. Passport Version 11.02 enables retailers using Passport POS (point-of-sale) to protect their businesses from fraud and meet EMV compliance in advance of the 2020 deadline.
All gasoline retailers in the United States have until Oct. 1, 2020, to update the POS systems in their fuel pumps to accept chip-enabled credit and debit cards to improve security. Those that don’t update their systems face fines from Visa and Mastercard.
