Visa Terminal Type Approval

Overview

Visa Type Approval process checks whether the functionality of contactless chip card acceptance devices is in line with Visa Specifications.

Visa terminal certification process verifies that a contactless payment terminal properly supports the Visa Contactless Payment Specification (VCPS) and has also obtained the specific EMVCo approval for contactless level 1 functionality.
Visa Contactless Payment Specification (VCPS) tests payment readers against the quick Visa Smart Debit/Credit (qVSDC) and Magnetic Stripe Data (MSD) test plans.

To mitigate the potential risk of interoperability issues, this program also includes interoperability testing (cross-testing) of the terminal device with a set of reference Visa approved cards.

Services Include:

  • Visa Level 2 contactless Magnetic Stripe Data (MSD) and Quick Visa Smart Debit/Credit (qVSDC) functional debug and type approval services for payment terminal devices
  • Visa Level 2 contactless Cross-Testing service for payment terminal devices
