Helcim Brings Point-of-Sale Innovation to Developers with the Launch of their Hybrid EMV Terminal

CALGARY, March 14, 2016 /CNW/ - This week marks the launch of Helcim's eagerly anticipated hybrid credit and debit card terminal and developer portal. The release unlocks a payment framework for point-of-sale (POS) software developers on Android, iOS and Windows.

With the arrival of EMV (Chip and PIN) and NFC (Tap and Pay), traditional POS integrations and certifications are becoming more complex and time-consuming, and are raising additional concerns of the security of credit card data. Smaller POS providers are finding it harder to offer integrated credit card processing as part of their software.

Helcim's new terminal design addresses those concerns by providing a turn-key solution to developers so that they can easily add EMV credit and debit integration as a feature. By sending transaction instructions to the terminal directly, the point-of-sale system is kept up to date on processed payments, without ever interacting with full credit card numbers.

SDKs and code samples have been made available for Java (Android), Objective-C (iOS) and C# (Windows). Developers and merchants can learn more about the new solution by visiting Helcim's website at: https://www.helcim.com/pos/
