Versatalis 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 Versatalis (now Priority Payment Systems) the following questions are designed to help you determine how the US EMV change might affect you.
 
IMPORTANT:  In 2014, without notice, Versatalis sold all of their merchants (you) to Priority Payment Systems (PPS).  Millennium Software, Inc., after failed attempts to work with PPS, has made the decision to discontinue supporting the Versatalis FDMS and Paymentech plug-ins.
 
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 16 in order to obtain the newest security features.
 
You can continue to process using Priority Payment Systems (PPS) through Atrex, however this option is not recommended because Millennium Software, Inc. is no longer developing or maintaining the Paymentech and FDMS plug-ins.  That means that if anything changes on PPS’s side, the plug-ins will stop working.  Also, if you are using the old Paymentech plug-in it is no longer available for download.  As such, should you ever need to reinstall or install on a new system you won’t be able to get the credit card processing to work.
 
Other options:
 
  • Upgrade to Atrex 16 (if you haven't already) and switch to Vantiv (formerly Mercury Payment Systems).
  • Process credit cards outside of Atrex.  Contact Priority Payment Systems, or any merchant processor of your choosing, for information on obtaining external credit card processing terminals.
 
Yes, my company processes card present transactions.
 
The existing Versatalis FDMS and Paymentech plug-ins are not EMV compliant.  As these components are no longer being actively maintained, they will not be updated to support EMV processing.
 
Options for EMV Processing:
 
  • Upgrade to Atrex 16 (if you haven't already) and switch to Vantiv (formerly Mercury Payment Systems).
  • Process credit cards outside of Atrex.  Contact Priority Payment Systems, or any merchant processor of your choosing, for information on obtaining external credit card processing terminals.
