FIME To Deliver D-PAS Terminal Certification Services for Discover

Services enable acquirers to integrate new EMV chip terminals into their Discover Global Network cards payment acceptance systems

Discover has accredited FIME, a leader in payments consultancy, to provide formal approval services for terminal the end-to-end certification of Discover Network and Diners Club International acceptance systems using D-Payment Application Specifications (D-PAS).  As a Discover-approved certification services provider, FIME also offers specialist consulting services to acquirers preparing their systems for end-to-end certification.

“Card acquiring banks and direct-connect merchants need to certify that their Discover and Diners Club acceptance infrastructure can receive and support EMV chip cards,” explains Xavier Giandominici, Vice President – Financial Services at FIME. “We have the knowledge, tools and capacity to enable Discover acquirers and merchants to complete this step successfully.”

FIME provides a complete pre-certification consulting offer alongside a range of test tool products, certification services and training workshops that are flexible to the needs of acquirers and direct-connect merchants. Pre-certification consulting provides test set-up, testing and fault diagnosis support, efficiently conducted on-site or remotely by EMV acquiring specialists. FIME’s high-capacity, no-lead time D-PAS end-to-end certification service complements the pre-certification consulting to provide acquirers with a fast, seamless route to achieve certification.

“FIME can now provide certification services to acquirers and merchants with Discover and Diners Club enabled contact and contactless D-PAS terminals,” said Ellie Smith, Head of Chip Center of Excellence at Discover.  “These services help to streamline certification and deployment processes globally for EMV, which will benefit merchants and acquirers by reducing time to market.”
