NY-based CardFlight reports its suite of mobile solutions has been certified by First Data to accept EMV “chip card” payments.
This will enable merchants to accept EMV payments on iOS and Android devices.
CardFlight’s solution includes an encrypted mobile card reader that supports both EMV chips and magnetic stripes. The hardware is paired with a software development kit that allows developers to easily embed EMV chip card payment acceptance into their own iOS and Android applications. CardFlight also offers a turn-key mobile application called SwipeSimple that is offered through a network of dozens of resellers including leading banks, merchant service providers and independent sales organizations. The solution can be co-branded or white-labeled to feature each reseller’s logo and other pertinent details.
CardFlight’s PCI-DSS Level 1 compliant gateway has been certified by First Data to accept EMV chip card transactions.
In addition to First Data’s certification, the solution has also passed a rigorous set of industry approvals including Visa Acquirer Device Validation Toolkit (ADVT), MasterCard Terminal Integration Process (M-TIP), American Express Integrated Circuit Card Payment Specification (AEIPS), and Discover Payment Application Specification (D-PAS).
