Verifone Certifies with First Data to Provide U.S. Gas Stations & Convenience Stores a Fast Path to EMV Acceptance

May 13, 2016 San Jose, Calif. – May 13, 2016

Migrating to EMV payment acceptance in the U.S. often requires merchants to spend considerable time and resources to certify point of sale (POS) systems with each of their processors. Gas stations and convenience stores face even greater complexity because they typically rely on their POS systems to manage other operations besides payments.
