EMV At The Pump Now Live for Gilbarco

The first EMV chip transactions have now occurred in the U.S. 

If your Gilbarco dispenser is EMV-ready, turning on EMV at the dispenser only requires a simple Passport software upgrade.  Industry research suggests that up to half of the gallons pumped in the U.S. in 2018 will be from EMV enabled dispensers – dispensers that have EMV hardware installed and need only a POS or minor dispenser upgrade.

Why this matters?

Why EMV Still Matters

The decision to delay the forecourt EMV liability shift from October 1, 2017 to October 1, 2020, came as quite a surprise to many in the industry.  While the delay provides retailers with additional time to make EMV upgrades, upgrades are likely to continue at a rapid pace given the potential risks to retailers choosing to wait.

Despite the delay in the liability shift date, the petroleum industry will continue to move forward with implementation and dealers are encouraged to make upgrades as soon as they become available. 

EMV at the Pump: Should you wait until 2020?

Industry reports suggest that approximately 33% of dispensers in the market are capable of processing payments to EMV data-security standards with either a software or small hardware upgrade.  Both Gilbarco and Wayne began shipping “EMV-ready” dispensers in 2011.  Both manufacturers are reportedly close to or have released software to enable EMV, and there is a high probability that many networks will be processing EMV from the pumps by mid-to late 2017.
