Card Brand Certifications Masterclass

Payment terminals must obtain several certifications to be able to accept payments from the various global payment card brands, such as Mastercard, Visa, Diners Club International, Discover, American Express, Union Pay International and JCB. The UL Card Brand Certifications Masterclass is a one-day course that will bring you true understanding of the process of deploying a fully compliant and interoperable payment terminal device. You will also receive training on the usage of UL’s Brand Test Tool or UL’s Visa PayWave Test Tool (VpTT).

The course begins by reviewing the basics of payment infrastructure and terminal architecture. Next, the different certifications a payment terminal needs before it can be deployed will be discussed. Then, we will have a detailed discussion of the EMVCo Level 3 card brands. Practicalities accumulated over the years by UL’s Brand Verification team will be shared and we will explain how to set up projects and run tests like an expert using UL’s Brand Test Tool or UL’s Visa PayWave Test Tool (VpTT).

Anyone involved in the development, testing and deployment of payment terminal systems can benefit from this course.
