As digitalization deepens, more financial crimes appear and bring great loss to consumers. Many governments and organizations formulate laws, regulations and technical standards to supervise financial payment terminals. These specifications protect payment accounts and data from potential attacks. In this context, obtaining financial payment certifications is extremely important for POS terminals.

Compliance. As more regulations are formulated to guarantee payment security, POS terminals have to pass a series of security tests. The payment terminals without regulation compliance even lost the ticket to enter the fierce international competition. To win a broader market, POS terminal providers must make their terminals compliant with more regulations of financial payments.

Security. Before obtaining certifications, POS terminals have to achieve a high standard of payment security in the financial payment industry and pass the required examinations. The certifications are evidence that the terminal providers have grasped the leading technology and the terminals are reliable enough to protect users’ payment from attacks.

Trust enhancing. Every customer hopes to be sure that their information and data can be kept properly. The POS terminals that are able to protect customer data and reduce payment risks can win the trust of customers. POS terminals with multiple security certifications can provide more trust and enhance customers’ payment confidence in the digital age.
