Maintain your PCI P2PE Program with Bluefin and Copper

Quickly enable Bluefin’s PCI-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE) contactless payments on your existing POS system

As a valued customer using Bluefin’s PCI-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE) solution through your MerchantLink integration, you are likely aware that MerchantLink was purchased by Shift4 and that their PCI-validated P2PE listing has expired. Per the PCI Security Standards Council (SSC), only P2PE solutions that have been validated by the Council are eligible to receive the reduced scope benefits of the P2PE SAQ and associated security and cost efficiencies of P2PE.

Bluefin wants to help your organization maintain its PCI P2PE program, and we have  partnered with restaurant provider Copper to introduce a new solution that provides your organization a quick and easy way to accept contactless, “pay at the table” payments that requires no integration to the Micros system and includes Bluefin’s PCI-validated P2PE solution.

How Copper Works

The Copper Cord is a plug and play smart cable that installs in minutes and is compatible with most legacy POS systems. The Copper Cord parses item-level transaction data in transit from the POS to the printer and passes the data directly to Bluefin’s PCI-validated P2PE PAX A920 or PAX A60 handheld payment terminal to allow simple and secure contactless transactions.

Customers love the security and convenience of paying at the table, while servers enjoy faster table turns, happier customers, and bigger tips. Restaurant owners and managers appreciate being able to shift chargeback liability back to the credit card companies via EMV compliant payments, while protecting their customers’ transactions with the highest level of encryption.

Copper in Action

Our story started when Roger, the restaurant’s server, notices that Jamie and Alex have finished their meal and are ready to check out. Roger will print the check and it will display on the A920 large-screen terminal. Roger then walks Jamie and Alex through a quick and seamless payment experience with the ability to split pay, tip, and use contactless payments, all while sitting at the table.

Jamie and Alex leave satisfied since they didn’t have to wait to settle their bill and split the transaction with as little contact as possible. Roger now has a few more minutes to clean the table between customers and the business owner, is now thrilled for the quick table turnaround.
