White Paper

When payment terminal operators eliminate the requirement of removing a credit card from a wallet or purse, consumers complete transactions nearly 53 percent faster than when utilizing traditional credit card payment methods, according to an American Express report. Though it requires an infrastructure overhaul, contactless EMV (Europay, MasterCard, Visa) offers a more efficient, secure method of handling credit card transactions. This white paper discusses three technical considerations for full performance contactless EMV in unattended payment terminals, including:

  • Metal’s impact on performance
  • Durable design elements
  • Near field communication (NFC) compliance
