Creditcall’s EMV SDKs and ID TECH’s readers simplify and speed up EMV Migration

New York – January 15, 2016 – Creditcall, the EMV-ready omni-channel payment gateway and EMV migration specialist, has partnered with ID TECH, a leading manufacturer of point of sale (POS) peripherals, to provide EMV chip-card acceptance to retailers, kiosk and vending operators. ID TECH’s card readers will be supported by Creditcall’s EMV SDK, ChipDNA for Windows and Linux, which can be integrated by developers, simplifying the upgrade to EMV.


With ID TECH’s new Augusta or Augusta S combination chip-card/magstripe reader for retail POS, and ID TECH’s Vend III for unattended solutions, merchants now have their choice of affordable peripherals to meet EMV requirements in a variety of settings.

ChipDNA EMV SDKs remove EMV complexities for developers

Developers, ISVs and VARs can apply the Windows and Linux SDKs in semi-integrated environments. iOS and Android EMV SDKs are available for tablet and smartphone based mobile POS (mPOS) solutions in addition to Creditcall’s SDKs for eCommerce and mCommerce transactions. ChipDNA includes a comprehensive reporting and management tool, a terminal management system (TMS), point to point encryption (P2PE), and tokenization for the highest level of cardholder data protection.

ChipDNA has also been approved with Visa Acquirer Device Validation Toolkit (ADVT), MasterCard Terminal Integration Process (M-TIP), American Express Integrated Circuit Card Payment Specification (AEIPS), and Discover Payment Application Specification (D-PAS).

“Creditcall’s partnership with ID TECH will give merchants an unprecedented opportunity to upgrade their existing POS quickly and easily saving them time and money,” said Sian Bosley, VP of Business Development at Creditcall. “Our simple SDKs help fast-track EMV chip card acceptance for developers, by removing the complexities around EMV certifications and also include strong transaction security with P2PE.”

“ID TECH’s partnership with Creditcall will be a real game changer for merchants looking to move from a magnetic stripe reader to an EMV solution,” said Bill Rorick, VP of Business Development, ID TECH “The integration of ID TECH’s Augusta hybrid reader with the Creditcall’s EMV SDK is a fast, seamless, and extremely cost effective path to EMV transactions in conjunction with Creditcall’s EMV-ready payment gateway. With the same basic envelope and identical mounting as our very popular SecureMag swipe readers, the switch from magnetic transactions to chip card transactions is almost as simple as just swapping out the reader.”

Creditcall is an EMVCo Business and Technical Associate, a PCI SSC Participating Organization and member of the EMV Migration Forum. Creditcall is also one of the few companies worldwide with a PCI P2PE certified solution.
