Schaumberg, Ill. – Credit and debit card processor Moneris Solutions has completed EMV certification of Verifone’s line of unattended payment devices, allowing merchants to adopt secure unattended payment that readies them for EMV and NFC payment acceptance.

Verifone’s UX Solutions are a series of customizable and versatile unattended payment devices for use in all types of self-service environments. They provide businesses with fully integrated payment functionality that connects their retail systems to the Moneris payment host, Moneris said in a news release. Verifone’s UX Solutions can support EMV and contactless payments (including NFC-enabled cards, Apple Pay and others), giving merchants in the unattended payment space the ability to securely accept payments and enhance the customer experience now and in the future.

Effective in October 2015, payment networks are shifting the liability for certain fraudulent non-EMV transactions from card issuers to payment acceptors.

“We are pleased to be working with Verifone to bring EMV-certified unattended payment solutions to the U.S. market,” said Chris Lee, president of North American Strategic Partnerships at Moneris. “Verifone is a key contributor to making an easy transition to EMV and contactless-ready solutions, providing the essential payment and commerce technology for businesses to take advantage of.”

“At Verifone, we are focused on educating and helping merchants to efficiently prepare for the EMV migration in ways that not only enable them to support EMV, but also enhance security, reduce complexity and grow their business,” said Shan Ethridge, vice president and general manager, North America Financial Services Group, Verifone.

Moneris also said it has been working closely with independent software vendors and integrators in Canada that specialize in implementing unattended payment for various markets. With this U.S. EMV certification, the company plans to continue working with these businesses to expand their EMV-capable options in the U.S. These companies include: Cale Systems, HUB Parking Technology, iPark Solutions, Parking BOXX, T.I.B.A. Parking Systems, Ventek International, and WPS Parking Solutions (parking); Vertex Petroleum (gas); Signifi Solutions (vending); and PDQ Manufacturing (car wash).
