Clearent Helps Businesses Process Chip Card Transactions Faster


Payment Processor Is One of First to Introduce Quick Chip for EMV to Merchants

Today, Clearent is launching Quick Chip Technology to business owners that will dramatically reduce customer wait times and improve the overall checkout experience for staff and customers. The new solution reduces chip card transaction times from 15 seconds to 2 seconds for all card brands, allowing merchants to accept chip cards with the same ease and speed as other payment types while being EMV compliant.

When a business uses EMV-compliant terminals or POS systems, it is protected from financial liability on fraudulent chip card transactions. Magstripe cards are much less secure than chip cards; criminals can easily steal sensitive data to produce counterfeit cards. Now, with Quick Chip, business owners who may have been hesitant to support EMV have an easy way to become compliant without sacrificing a speedy checkout experience. Clearent's Quick Chip solution is available on PAX and Dejavoo payment devices and includes features that allow restaurant and retail businesses to accept tips with ease with tip functions such as tip-at-point-of-sale and tip-adjust. Businesses that already use an EMV-ready PAX or Dejavoo device may be able to upgrade to Quick Chip with a simple software update.

Additionally, with Quick Chip, businesses have the option to accept payments anywhere with WiFi and 3G-enabled payment devices. The terminals also accept contactless payments from mobile wallets, such as Apple Pay and Samsung Pay catering to all customers' preferred payment methods to ensure businesses never miss a sale.

"Lengthy chip card transactions have unfortunately discouraged many business owners from supporting EMV," said Dan Geraty, founder and CEO of Clearent. "We are pleased to offer this new technology that makes EMV compliance a win-win for businesses. With Quick Chip, they are off the hook for fraudulent charges made on chip cards and can increase their revenue by processing a higher volume of sales."
