Electronic payments provider AJB Software is pleased to announce the completion of 7 U.S. EMV Class B Host Certifications and is on track to deliver 4 more before the end of first quarter 2016.

October 1, 2015 marked the beginning of the EMV liability shift for retailers across the U.S. This change in fraud management for merchants will transfer the liability for transactions from counterfeit cards and lost or stolen cards from the acquirer or merchant in certain cases if they do not accept EMV chip enabled transactions to process payment transactions. Merchant’s can take advantage of these host certifications to significantly reduce the deployment time for EMV credit and debit acceptance.
