EMV Certification Requirements

Question asked by on Jan 31, 2018

I am curious as to what the certification requirements are to have our own hardware (Augusta-S reader/EMV) certified with Vantiv through our own POS Software. I see mention of TriPOS (hosted) and Element, but I am not sure those exactly fit the bill.

We use PayFac to board merchants and process through Vantiv directly (API calls) using Card-present swipes (naturally PCI-compliant including DUKPT encryption). We want to add EMV capabilibites for our merchants using our POS software solution and Augusta readers, but I at a bit of a loss as to the certification process for this software/hardware combination.
