Worldnet Completes First EMV Level 3 Certification of ID TECHs VP8300 to First Data

Worldnets certification provides ISVs accelerated EMV compliance

Worldnet, a leading provider of omni-channel payment solutions and ID TECH, the global leader in payment peripheral technology have completed the first Level 3 certification through First Data for ID TECHs new VP8300 countertop payment solution. The VP8300 incorporates secure MagStripe, EMV* contact, and EMV contactless payment technologies such as MasterCard PayPass, Visa PayWave as well as ApplePay and GooglePay.

With the certification, Worldnet provides ISVs (independent software vendors) with a pre-certified payment path to EMV compliance. Working with Worldnet, ISVs can reduce the typical lead time to develop and certify an EMV compliant POS solution from many months to a matter of days.

The Worldnet Omnichannel Payment Platform supports ID TECHs EMV products, including the VP8300, a customer-facing countertop reader that ensures all magnetic stripe, EMV contact, and EMV contactless transactions are encrypted and secure before data is transmitted to the host device. Combined with Worldnets technology, ID TECHs VP8300 hardware can easily process transactions from any channel via First Datas payments network.

Our GoChip payment solution, combined with ID TECHs VP8300 hardware, provides ISVs a pre-certified payment path that makes the transition to EMV quick, cost-effective and seamless said John Clarke, Head of Product Innovation at Worldnet. This certification provides a solution for key players in the POS industry, such as ISVs, to address their EMV challenges. The VP8300 is the perfect solution for ISVs that need to support the latest payment capabilities without the additional overhead, complexity and cost of a full PINPad payment device.

Worldnet supports traditional desktop POS as well as iOS and Android operating systems for mobile and tablet POS merchants and is available for Windows Desktop, iOS, Android, and Java.

ID TECHs newest generation of payments hardware provides our customers with the most secure, quickest option to accept EMV payments via card or contactless payment methods, said Bill Rorick, VP of Business Development at ID TECH. Completing the certification with Worldnet and First Data provides our customers with the most cost-effective way to present an omnichannel payment infrastructure.
