Gilbarco Announces First US Dispenser EMV "Chip" Transaction

Gilbarco Veeder-Root has announced the successful processing of the first US EMV™ "chip" transaction at a fuel dispenser, utilizing Gilbarco's Passport® Point-of-Sale (POS) and Encore® fuel dispensers on the First Data network (NYSE:FDC). 

Gilbarco's Passport POS solution is the first POS in the US to process forecourt EMV transactions, leveraging FlexPay™ CRINDS from Gilbarco.  Gilbarco expects forecourt EMV payments to quickly begin turning on across the country at the large installed base of FlexPay CRINDS as the software is released for payment networks throughout the year, and as fraud migrates to less secure payment points and security-conscious customers migrate to those sites with enhanced security.
