China UnionPay Qualifies FIME Test Platform

December 15, 2016         By: Mike Dautner

FIME’s chip payment test platform Savvi, used by acquirers, processors and merchants globally for terminal integration testing, now supports China UnionPay (UnionPay) certification.

The new certification process requires merchants and acquirers to confirm that a terminal meets UnionPay’s credit and debit card standards and will successfully integrate with the payment infrastructure.

The Savvi Test Platform is an automated testing and certification management tool, which significantly reduces the overall time needed to complete UnionPay terminal integration testing. This saves acquirers and merchants time and money.

It achieves this by automatically determining applicable test cases, providing test process guidance, retrieving and validating test results, as well as generating and submitting test reports according to UnionPay’s requirements. The easy-to-use interface is available in Chinese and English.

“As the Chinese payment infrastructure becomes increasingly dynamic with multiple payment brands and the introduction of innovative technologies, it is important that new solutions will perform as intended and interoperate successfully within the existing payment ecosystem,” explains Alex Chen, Business Director Asia Pacific at FIME. “The latest certification requirement from UnionPay promotes this integrity, which is extremely positive for the marketplace. By using the Savvi Test Platform, merchants and acquirers can significantly shorten testing times due to its automation, and launch solutions to market without unnecessary certification delays.”

Savvi supports an extensive range of international and domestic payment brand qualifications to deliver market-leading multi-brand testing.
