Sterling Payment Technologies, a leading provider of payment processing, announced it has partnered with RPOWER Point of Sal , a provider of restaurant point of sale solutions, to offer a fully-integrated EMV-enabled solution to businesses in the hospitality industry. Utilizing both Datacap NETePay and VeriFone’s VX805 EMV terminal, the EMV solution also includes a tip adjust feature.

“Sterling is proud to be partnering with RPOWER to deliver an innovative and secure EMV solution to the market,” says Rich Peterson, divisional president of integrated point of sale at Sterling Payment Technologies. “Protecting our customers’ data will always be our top priority. We’re committed to providing EMV solutions that are secure, dependable and easy to deploy.”

Due to the liability shift by the major card brands, restaurants that do not utilize terminals that process EMV chip card transactions are now liable for chargebacks associated with payments made with counterfeit, lost or stolen payment cards. This burden can represent significant losses to businesses that do not use EMV-enabled point of sale systems.

“The protection of our merchants’ business and the security of their customers’ credit card information takes precedence above all else,” says Jami Interdonato, vice president of business development at RPOWER Point of Sale. “Sterling makes EMV compliance easy and affordable for RPOWER users. Our partnership provides a solution that brings security, reliability and value to our customers.”
