PC Charge EMV and PCI Compliance

(This article is part of the general EMV and PCI Compliance article.  If you didn't get to this page from that article please click here.)
 
 
If you process credit cards from inside Atrex using PC Charge the following questions are designed to help you determine how the US EMV change might affect you.
 
Do you process card present transactions (swipe physical cards)?
 
No, my company never processes card present transactions.
 
EMV doesn’t apply to you.  However PCI Compliance and credit card data security does.  As such, if you are using a version of Atrex older than version 14 you should consider upgrading to Atrex 17 in order to obtain the newest security features.
 
Also, if you haven’t yet been notified by Verifone that they are discontinuing development and support of PC Charge you can read their end-of-life statement here.
 
Since PC Charge is being discontinued Atrex 15 will be the last version of Atrex to officially support PC Charge.  Should you choose to you can continue to use PC Charge with your current version of Atrex until you run into a problem with PC Charge or Atrex that can’t be resolved or until your merchant ceases support for PC Charge.
 
Other options:
 
  • Upgrade to Atrex 17 (if you haven't already) and switch to Vantiv (formerly Mercury Payment Systems).
  • Process credit cards outside of Atrex.  Contact your merchant processor for information on obtaining external credit card processing terminals.
 
Yes, my company processes card present transactions.
 
Verifone is not going to make PC Charge EMV compliant and instead are discontinuing development and support of PC Charge.  You can read their end-of-life statement here.
 
Options for EMV Processing:
 
  • Upgrade to Atrex 17 (if you haven't already) and switch to Vantiv (formerly Mercury Payment Systems).
  • Process credit cards outside of Atrex.  Contact your merchant processor for information on obtaining external credit card processing terminals.
