EMV OverviewEMV Basics & Best Practices

  • Industry leading security and technology with end-to-end encryption, tokenization, and EMV capabilities Amex program that provides express funding, one consolidate statement, and interchange rates in line with Visa and MasterCard
  • Funding of deposits faster than most-independent processors as long as the client batches out by 8pm Eastern
  • One simple, easy to read statement with all four card types
  • A triple layered customer service model which includes; local representative, US based service center that’s open 365 days a year/24 hours per day/7 days a week and answers calls 6 seconds with a live customer service representative, and the client receives full access to an online portal to monitor their merchant services

Heartland is able to get your business up and running with Apple Pay immediately. Even better, no special merchant agreement is needed to accept Apple Pay. With Apple Pay, token representing the card number is stored on a Secure Element within the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus.

When the consumer is ready to pay, that token is sent by way of near field communication (NFC) to the reader for authorization. The NFC reader that is attached to the POS system or terminal will send the transaction to Heartland’s preferred processor for authorization.
