Cayan Adds EMV Certification with Worldpay

BOSTON, Aug. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — In the world of payments, security and seamless transactions are paramount. In order to help merchants reach those goals, payments technology company Cayan has announced it has achieved chip card certification with Worldpay US, a global leader in payments processing technology and solutions. Cayan’s new certification marks the latest in a series of EMV certifications, including Chase, Vantiv, First Data and Elavon, solidifying Cayan’s processor agnostic approach. 

Cayan’s cloud-based Genius® platform now offers merchants even more choice in payment processors with the addition of Worldpay processing. In turn, Worldpay’s customers can also access the power of Cayan’s Genius Platform. In addition to providing chip card gateway capabilities, the Cayan Genius Platform is a fully-configurable, cloud-based payment solution that allows merchants to manage the entire customer experience across locations and between channels all while keeping sensitive cardholder data off of the POS system. Genius allows merchants to accept all forms of payment, including mobile wallets, and with Genius’ ChipIQ™ technology, chip card transactions are processed in just 4 seconds.

“No business wants to disrupt their operations to switch payment processors. Our approach gives merchants the freedom to keep their current processor or to switch at any time to best meet the needs of their business,” said Ken Paull, CRO at Cayan. “By continuing to achieve certifications with all the leading industry processors, Cayan becomes the best choice for our partners and customers.”

“It’s not easy operating a business in a payments landscape that is constantly shifting, so offering a payment processing technology that seamlessly adjusts to those shifts is one of our primary goals,” said Cheryl Lester, Vice President of Implementations and Certifications, Worldpay.
