At Merchant Services we use only the most up-to-date Payment Card Industry compliant software and equipment to help our merchants handle transactions securely and efficiently. All of our PIN transaction devices meet Triple Data Encryption Standards (Triple DES or 3DES) to help ensure the security of cardholder data, protecting you and your customers.

Triple DES is the industry sanctioned algorithm standard used by all debit-capable transaction terminals for PIN encryption in the U.S. and is the latest advancement in fraud security protection.

Visa has mandated that all devices be replaced and updated to comply with Triple DES by July 1, 2010. This mandate will involve a major overhaul of existing equipment systems and my require replacements for all merchants accepting PIN-based transactions.

Our line of Triple DES PIN devices Includes:
