FIME Test Cards

Acquirer and acceptance test cards

Choosing test cards for certification

Payment host and terminal systems must comply with the certification requirements of each payment brand, this ensures payment interoperability. Test cards must be qualified to the latest brand test requirements and there are pitfalls in selecting these cards:

  • How do you optimize test effciency for different brands?
  • How do you minimize the cost of the test set-up and accessories for multiple brands?
  • How do you efficiently maintain the cards to the latest specifications?

Select Ready-to-use physical test cards

Physical test cards from FIME don’t need to be programmed or configured, they are ready-touse. They can be used to certify any type of terminal, even those with complex card paths such as ATM and CAT. They are suitable for multi-user environments such as testing laboratories where testers share the cards.

FIME Test Cards are unique, they only need the Card Log Viewer - supplied with every card deck - and a card reader to retrieve and view test logs. FIME’s well-regarded maintenance service ensures card decks are always up-to-date. FIME Test Cards can also be used with the SAVVI Test Platform to benefit from the automated test-result analysis.


Comprehensive maintenance services are available to make sure you remain compliant with the latest brand requirements and receive updates automatically. FIME Test Cards are organized into card decks according to brand use.

To complete the validation, access to a payment brand test host is required. FIME recommends using FIME Test Cards with the SAVVI Test Platform to simplify and speed-up the management of pre-certification and certification sessions. FIME also offers on-site services to assist you in your preparation and certification testings of your terminal and host systems.
