Pacific Amber Technologies Inc Partners with YESpay International to Offer EMV Chip and PIN Payment Services to Retailers

September 20, 2010, Coquitlam, BC, CanadaPacific Amber Technologies Inc. announces YESpay EasyV-Retail integration enabling its growing base of AmberPOS point of sale customers to accept Chip and PIN debit and credit card payments.

YESpay’s EasyV-Retail solution enables merchants to process EMV Chip & PIN and magnetic credit and debit card payments within seconds, and is now fully integrated into the AmberPOS point of sale software solution. This proposition in fact relieves merchants from deploying and maintaining an in-house payment solution as well as undergoing formal end-to-end bank testing and managing PCI-DSS compliance.

Merchants running the AmberPOS software integrated with YESpay’s EasyV-Retail solution can process and settle transactions securely online with their chosen card acquirer such as Chase Paymentech and FirstData via YESpay’s pre-accredited and PCI-DSS certified EMBOSS Bureau Service. All major EMV credit and debit cards are supported with the EasyV-Retail solution including Visa, Mastercard, Interac, Maestro, Amex, Diners and more. EasyV-Retail also supports on-line PIN validation for both Canadian Interac debit card transactions as well as US magnetic debit transactions.

YESpay’s integration with AmberPOS point of sale software means small to medium sized retailers now have a cost-effective PCI-DSS compliant payment solution fully integrated with a leading edge POS software.

Having successfully helped hundreds of retailers in the Greater Vancouver area for over 15 years, Pacific Amber Technologies chose to integrate with EMBOSS in order to offer to its customers a secure, pre-accredited payment service at a low monthly cost.

Mike Piotrowski, President of Pacific Amber Technologies comments “We are excited to announce YESpay integration within our AmberPOS software platform, offering customers a low cost PCI-DSS compliant solution to help them meet the EMV compliance deadline.”

The EMBOSS payment gateway is already well established in the UK and Europe as a generically certified IP-based payment processing service and UK and European based companies have been using YESpay payment processing service for over 5 years. Through EMBOSS, merchants can fast track the implementation of integrated EMV card payments acceptance solutions for their electronic cash register, kiosks and hospitality payment systems. It can also enhance their websites for on-line payments with minimal capital investment and low ongoing costs. EMBOSS reduces business and technical issues of outsourcing  payment services and helps merchants avoid lengthy timescales and high costs of EMV certification and PCI compliance of their retail environments. Fully scalable, EMBOSS can address the needs of the single location merchant as well as larger chains with 100s of stores.

Rahul Garg, Regional Manager Canada at YESpay International adds “We are very happy to be able to help retailers with a truly pre-accredited payment service and help them enjoy a fast, reliable but also inexpensive service while meeting the deadline for EMV compliance of October 2010. As our first terminals are up and running in Canada, we are very excited with the acceptance of our service in the Canadian market and at the same time committed to continue to assist merchants with their payment requirements”.
