The importance of payment terminal security and functionality 

Terminal point-of-sale (POS) vendors encounter complex challenges when running test execution or deploying or updating payment terminals. For glitch-free transactions, terminal vendors must meet the rising security and convenience demands of an interconnected and cashless world. Payment terminals also need to be functionally compliant with the specifications set by industry regulators and standardization bodies both globally and locally. Between implementation, testing and certification, you need an easy solution. 

UL Solutions works with terminal vendors to facilitate the deployment of interoperable and reliable payment acceptance infrastructures for any particular region, country or market. We aggregate efficiency into terminal development processes to enable a scaled or even fully automatized terminal application testing. UL Solutions supports terminal vendors with end-to-end support to meet all terminal implementation needs. Through our accredited laboratories and recognized testing expertise, we can help bring interoperable, reliable and secure devices into the market.

Our comprehensive payment terminal solutions are designed to offer significant benefits, including:

  • Streamlining device acceptance into market with advisory services, PCI PTS evaluations and EMVCo and payment scheme testing and certification
  • Enhancing the quality of terminal software and the customer experience
  • Mitigating risks by complying to scheme requirements
