Fime is the first to be approved by the European Card Payment Cooperation (ECPC) to test and certify payment terminals and SoftPOS solutions in line with the CPA Contactless Extensions (CPACE) specification. Terminal vendors and kernel developers can now confirm the Level 2 functional compliance of their products using Fime’s Eval+ cloud-based test tool and lab services. CPACE provides a foundation of interoperability for the European payment ecosystem, offering a seamless experience for consumers when making contactless payments.
Fime’s extensive portfolio of CPACE services allows players to achieve compliance with multiple schemes quickly and efficiently. This approach helps to reduce costs, mitigate risks and ensure consistency across the ecosystem.
Our unique experience allows us to support the development of CPACE as a common European platform for contactless payment acceptance. By increasing openness and reducing the time needed to develop different technologies, stakeholders can avoid vendor lock-in and focus on enabling innovation. We are proud to be facilitating interoperability in the terminal acceptance ecosystem to drive better user experiences across Europe.
