Heartland Payment Systems and Pinnacle have launched the first integrated point-of-sale (POS) system for petroleum retailers that is compliant with EMV.
Heartland and Pinnacle’s Palm POS system provides petro retailers with the highest level of protection available against card-present data fraud and will accept EMV chip-cards for indoor and contact transactions.
Petro retailer Lynch Oil of Burley, Idaho is upgrading its POS system to accept EMV payments with the help of Heartland and Pinnacle. When completed, the company will be the first petro retailer to use the EMV POS system at six Mr. Gas locations in southern Idaho.
The Heartland and Pinnacle Palm POS solution has been EMV certified by American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa. Cardholders can now use their EMV credit cards at appropriate petro retailers equipped with Heartland and the Pinnacle Palm POS solution.
