Kwik Trip Selects PCI Compliant PIN Pads

10/07/2009
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Kwik Trip Inc. of La Crosse, Wis., will upgrade its convenience stores' fuel dispensers with Gilbarco FlexPay Encrypting PIN Pad (EPP) retrofits for Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance, the vendor reported.

The program begins this month with 1,157 dispensers at 164 locations in the first phase, and the award-winning hardware is PCI Encrypting PIN Pad (PCI EPP) compliant and provides for Triple Data Encryption Standard (TDES) encryption of the Personal Identification Numbers (PIN) entered by consumers during debit card transactions at the pumps, according to the company.

"Kwik Trip's decision enables their customers to continue to use PIN-based debit at the dispenser after July 1, 2010, with card and PIN data protected through encryption," said Scott McDowell, director of dispenser applications at Gilbarco Veeder-Root. "The FlexPay EPP is available as a field retrofit and as a factory-installed option on new dispensers to provide consumers with a consistent experience at all locations."
