Secondary market retailer enhances payment security at Dirt Cheap and Treasure Hunt locations with iSC Touch 250 smart terminals powered by SLIM CD’s semi-integrated solution

Ingenico Group (Euronext: FR0000125346 – ING), the global leader in seamless payment, and SLIM CD Inc., a provider of payment processing software and gateway services, announced today that Channel Control Merchants, LLC (CCM) has chosen to upgrade the point of sale (POS) at its more than 80 Dirt Cheap and Treasure Hunt locations across the United States with Ingenico Group’s iSC


Touch 250 smart terminals and SLIM CD’s semi-integrated software solution.

Through its partnership with Ingenico Group and SLIM CD, Channel Control Merchants will now be able to securely accept EMV chip & sign, EMV chip & PIN and magstripe transactions. SLIM CD’s semi-integrated payment processing solution along with Ingenico Group’s industry-leading iSC Touch 250 smart terminal enables Channel Control Merchants to reduce its PCI scope by keeping the POS software and back office system out of the transaction flow. Additionally, with point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and tokenization, Channel Control Merchants’ customers’ payment data is kept secure throughout the transaction process while shopping at Dirt Cheap and Treasure Hunt locations.

“With our new POS solution, we’re able to seamlessly accept EMV payments with minimal effort, while reducing PCI scope and ensuring better security for our customers,” said Mitch Peek, IT director at Channel Control Merchants, LLC. “The company is well positioned to continue its strong growth in 2017 thanks in part to the easy integration and success of the EMV payment functionality provided by Ingenico Group’s and SLIM CD’s solutions.”

“SLIM CD’s semi-integrated toolkit with Ingenico Group’s smart terminals provide developers with the simplest and most efficient path to EMV compliance,” said Frank Haggar, director of product development at SLIM CD, Inc. “In addition to the security offered through full EMV support, the terminal and toolkit support signature capture and a variety of other checkout applications, ensuring Channel Control Merchants’ locations deliver an unparalleled checkout experience for their customers.”

By choosing to upgrade its POS terminals with Ingenico Group hardware powered by SLIM CD’s semi-integrated software solution, Channel Control Merchants benefitted from a simple and quick installation process, allowing the company to focus efforts on business operations and the growth of its brands. As Channel Control Merchants continues to expand, its move to a nimble, customizable semi-integrated payment solution will help the company keep pace with latest payment technology and successfully meet consumer needs.

“Becoming EMV compliant and ensuring best-in-class payment security can be a lengthy and costly process for many mid-sized merchants,” said Bernie Frey, senior vice president, US indirect sales at Ingenico Group. “By upgrading to SLIM CD’s semi-integrated payment solution, Channel Control Merchants is well-positioned to offer safe and secure payments to its customers across its Dirt Cheap and Treasure Hunt locations.”
