GREENSBORO, N.C. — Gasboy, which specializes in fleet fueling technology, is launching EMV (chip card) payment capabilities for the Islander and ICR PRIME payment terminals.
The Gasboy Islander PRIME EMV system combines its fuel management controller with a payment card industry (PCI) compliant EMV card reader and pin pad, and is used by unattended retailers across the country to accept credit card payment without the need of a separate point-of-sale system. With Gasboy’s PCI-approved EMV solution, consumers’ credit card information is protected, and retailers are protected from chargebacks associated with fraudulent transactions.
Gasboy’s Islander PRIME EMV system is built for unattended retail fueling such as cardlocks, co-ops, airports and marinas.
“Consumers have become accustomed to paying with EMV chip cards in general retail for greater payment security, and Gasboy’s customers will now be able to offer that enhanced security to their end users,” said Mark Williams, president of alternative fuels platform for Gilbarco Veeder-Root.
The Islander PRIME EMV features an insert style hybrid card reader that accepts both magnetic stripe and chip cards. The card reader and 16 key pin pad are equipped with anti-tamper features. The EMV reader and pin pad are available as a factory installed option on new Islander PRIME systems or as a retrofit for currently installed Islander PRIME systems, helping to protect retailers from increased liability following the April 2021 EMV liability shift. The EMV option is also available on ICR PRIME when used with the commercial fueling network site controller.
Gasboy’s Islander PRIME EMV solution is certified for EMV credit transactions on all major credit card brands including Visa, Mastercard, AmericanExpress and Discover. Fleet cards including WEX, Voyager and Fuelman as well as proprietary cards are also accepted. The Islander PRIME EMV reader is approved on the National Bankcard Services payment network.
Gasboy, a Gilbarco Veeder-Root company based in Greensboro, N.C., is a brand of equipment and services for fleet operators. Gasboy fleet management systems include a selection of commercial electronic and mechanical fuel dispensers, site controllers, fleet management software, island card readers and cardlock systems and wireless vehicle identification systems.
