EMV (for Europay-MasterCard-Visa) is a global standard supporting the use of chip cards (“smart cards”) for card present debit and credit transactions.

Note: A chip card is also referred to as an EMV card or an ICC (Integrated Circuit Card).

Simplify supports EMV processing for the following Tran Types:

  • Auth Only (01)

  • Sale (02)

  • Return (09)

Based on settings, each supported Tran Type can be processed as either EMV or swiped. Please contact your Elavon representative for configuration settings.

Simplify will attempt to process a transaction as EMV when the chip reader successfully communicates with the ICC to obtain card data and EMV processing is enabled for the card type and transaction type. When the POS sends a request to Simplify, it will populate the fields required to process the transaction. EMV processing is largely transparent to the POS, with the exception of receipt printing.
