How we can help you?


To minimize your certification time with the acquirer or processor, pre-certification is highly recommended.

It will enable a fast and successful go-to-market and facilitating a smoother and compliant formal brand certification for Terminal Integration Testing. Our experts help you streamline your project time frame, either on your premises or off-site, in our certification laboratory. We have worked on flexibility, collaborative models with payment brands. Within all current business models, we strive to act as a reliable partner. It will result in a win-win model for both companies.
A typical example of our pre-certification services includes:
• Setting up the test environment
• Accredited test solutions

Formal Brand Certification

Formal Brand Certification is the process that tests the acceptance environment of a merchant in conjunction with an acquirer or processor that will use it to enable EMV payment transactions. This service will be a follow-up step to the pre-certification process. In addition to the pre-certification process, we take you through the entire certification procedure, managing all formalities such as communication with the acquirer/ processor and payment networks. Our teams will work with you on registration of the product and validation of the environment against the payment brand product requirements. Technical experts evaluate test results against the payment network and acquirer or processor requirements. A detailed test analysis report, including authorization logs and card-terminal traces, will be provided. In case of required iterations, our experts will assess and take the essential steps for improvement and issue resolution. Based upon the test analysis report, we will then go through the full approval steps as required by each Payment Brand.

Test Solutions

Our fully automated Working tool supports both contacts and contactless EMV payment terminals. It works through Programmable test cards log the card-terminal data exchange automatically so no spying hardware is required. The test solution contains brand certification test scripts and step-by-step user guidance during test execution. The tool reads the card-terminal log and automatically validates the data exchange. It imports the Host Simulator log and automatically validates the acquirer host data exchanges.Then, reports can be generated in the brand’s official formats, ready to apply for the formal certification process.


Host Simulation Tools

The test tool allows the execution of complete brand-defined test scripts without connection to the acquirer processor environment or brand network host — these are the same test scripts as used during brand certification. Pre-certification test suites allow rapid testing and retesting during terminal development before the often expensive and difficult-to-plan full brand certification. Terminals that have gone through pre-certification often require only one brand certification cycle as the payment brand network testing rules have already been applied. For Brand Certification, the live Acquirer Processor Host needs to be used, in this case only the Brand Network is simulated. The tool allows execution of the complete brand-defined test scripts without connection to the actual brand network.
