NCR Counterpoint now supports “Quick Chip”!
What is Quick Chip?
Quick Chip for EMV allows customers to insert (dip) and remove their EMV chip card at checkout in about 2 seconds. They can even do so before the transaction is complete. This is similar to the “Swipe Any Time” feature in NCR Counterpoint.
Quick Chip is also meant to help the payment industry’s transition to EMV chip.
In order to use Quick Chip with NCR Counterpoint, you will need to be running version 22.214.171.124, have an Ingenico ISC250 payment terminal with the required firmware version, and an account setup and configured with NCR Secure Pay.
So if you are already processing EMV chip cards through your NCR Counterpoint software, all that should need to be done is update your software to 126.96.36.199 and update your payment terminal to the required firmware.
With the update to 188.8.131.52, you will also be able to accept Pin Debit transactions using the EMV technology as well. There are some processor specific restrictions for Pin Debit, so be sure to ask CCS about your current configuration.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact the CCS Retail Systems Support Department at 800.672.4806 or email us at support.
