Visa, First Data's STAR Partner on Common EMV Debit Solution

Visa 2014 logo 140x60Visa and First Data’s STAR Network have announced an agreement to share Visa’s common debit solution offering.

The two companies say that "collaboration ... on the license agreement will help to enable the development of regulation-compliant debit EMV solutions using a common Application Identifier (AID). First Data’s STAR Network will use PIN and no CVM functionality on the common AID to facilitate different types of debit transactions on its network, including PIN, PINless and signature cardholder verification methods. The AID will facilitate U.S. debit transactions from any debit network that licenses the Visa common AID solution and is enabled on a Visa card.

This agreement is a significant step to accelerate EMV adoption by addressing Regulation II compliance for debit EMV transactions,” said Barry McCarthy, president, First Data Financial Services.

“First Data’s STAR Network is pleased to lead the effort by being one of the first debit networks to take this step and assist issuers, acquirers, and merchants with equal access to a shared EMV chip card technology. Not only does it accelerate the migration to EMV adoption, but also moves the industry a step closer to additional debit payment security,” McCarthy added.

With the addition of First Data’s STAR Network, Visa debit issuers can now choose among several competing network options for their EMV chip debit cards, while also reducing the complexities of chip implementation.
