WorldPay US completes EMV certification for Visa

EMV certified

WorldPay US has completed its EMV acquirer testing for Visa acceptance according to reports. This represents a key milestone in the preparation for business owners to accept “chip” cards encrypted with the EuroPay, MasterCard and Visa (EMV) standard. 

“EMV is largely about helping reduce card fraud, which benefits everyone involved – from the card issuer to the cardholder to the business owner,” said Tony Catalfano, president and CEO of WorldPay US.

He continues, “By achieving VISA EMV certification and diligently working towards certification with the other card brands, we are broadening our scope of capabilities to meet the needs of our customers, and align with the evolution of card payment types. Furthermore, this accomplishment positions us to provide an enhanced level of service to our customer base by helping them protect their business – and their customers – from card fraud and the harm that can be done as a result.”

The global payments acquirer is also on track to complete similar EMV certification with MasterCard, AMEX and discover.
