Visa, Fiserv Partner for Debit EMV on Accel Network

Fiserv logo 60pxhFiserv has announced an agreement to make Visa’s common debit EMV solution available for the Accel™ debit network. Under the agreement, Fiserv will adopt Visa’s common debit solution offering issuers, acquirers and merchants a simple, streamlined approach for debit EMV adoption. The agreement will help enable the development of regulation-compliant debit EMV solutions using a common Application Identifier (AID).

With more than 7 million Visa EMV chip cards already issued in the U.S., it is important to continue the momentum towards more widespread adoption,” said Bill Sheedy, executive vice president of Corporate Strategy and Government Relations, Visa Inc.

“With Fiserv participating in the common solution we have made available to the industry, we can offer more choices to issuers and merchants and a clear roadmap for streamlined, cost-effective chip adoption.”

By licensing the Visa AID, the Accel network will be able to process PIN and PINless EMV transactions ensuring enhanced transaction processing security. 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.

MasterCard, Fiserv Partner on Debit EMV for Accel Network

MasterCard LogoFiserv and MasterCard have announced an agreement to make MasterCard’s U.S. common debit EMV solution available for the Accel debit network.

Under the agreement, MasterCard issuers will be able to "select and implement network relationships, while merchants and acquirers will continue to route transactions as they prefer, without introducing multiple applications and complicated technology upgrades."

This represents our continued commitment to help issuers, merchants and others continue the migration to the EMV standard here in the U.S.,” said Chris McWilton, president, North American Markets, MasterCard.

“In this agreement, Fiserv and the Accel network are able to provide their customers a solution that can be activated today, delivering enhanced security while streamlining implementation and accelerating delivery of chip cards to our shared cardholders.”

“As a leader in card processing, we are committed to providing our clients with a simple, streamlined path to implement EMV,” said Kevin Gregoire, group president, Financial Institutions Group, Fiserv.

“We are pleased to partner with MasterCard as part of a comprehensive, Regulation II compliant solution that includes Accel Network processing, card production and personalization, and industry-leading fraud and risk mitigation.”

MasterCard says its U.S. common debit EMV solution is "consistent with the EMV Migration Forum’s recommendations, including a single common debit application identifier (AID) and single application on each card, as well as multiple ways to verify the cardholder’s identity."

Fiserv Simplifies: ACCEL/Exchange Becomes Accel

Fiserv logo 60pxhFiserv this morning announced that its debit payments network, formerly known as ACCEL/Exchange®, has a new name - Accel™. According to the company, "the new name reflects the network’s ability to accelerate funds transfers across retail, biller and social person-to-person payments, and positions the network within the Fiserv portfolio of payments capabilities to create the world’s leading real-time network."

Fiserv updated the network’s name to reflect the 24x7-always-connected world we’re living in,” said David Keenan, general manager, Network Solutions, Fiserv. “Accel helps consumers move money when and how they want. Our real-time payments platform, developed over the last 40 years, has expanded from ATM and retail payments to enabling social payments, as we demonstrated last year with the integration of Accel with our person-to-person payments service, Popmoney®.”
