Yes! With the Offline Credit feature set, you can accept credit payments and have them automatically processed when your connection is established. It even works if your card processor goes down.
Why should I switch to EMV chip payments?
As liability for fraudulent credit card transactions has shifted to merchants who aren’t outfitted with EMV technology, making the switch now will minimize your liability in the future. In addition, you’ll be ready to accept Apple Pay and other contactless payment services.
What do I need to make the EMV upgrade?
First, your card processor has to be certified for EMV and your POS system. You can order your EMV reader and stand from NCR Silver. You can also set up your EMV monthly service through NCR Silver. Shortly after ordering, you’ll receive email instructions on getting your new technology enabled at your store and with your processor.
