payment security

Merchant Payments believe that it is the payment providers responsibility to provide safe payment solutions and we are focused on delivering payment solutions that that are both industry leading and PCI DSS compliant.

The focus of security relies on the safe processing and storage of sensitive personal Credit Card, Charge Card and Direct Entry information. PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) Compliance is a strict security standard the card schemes (Visa and MasterCard) have introduced globally to ensure personal information is properly protected.

MPS will only recommend partners that hold the highest level of PCI DSS accreditation that protect both merchants and card holders against data breaches.

For example our recommended eftpos provider Tyro provides an integrated IP eftpos solution that does not expose the cardholder data. Tyro’s new architecture protects merchants and card holders against data breaches. Merchants using Tyro merchants do not have to manage the risks and costs of PCI-DSS compliance and the costs of a data breach.

These may include potential scheme fines and of security breach investigations.Tyro’s technology insulates the merchant's network from sensitive card holder and transaction data. All customer cardholder data is secure and there is no risk to his reputation or liability from disclosure of this data

We hold the same standards for our preferred e-commerce gateway payment partners.

Implementing Tyro into our business has been a key factor in the success of our recent relocation and expansion. Customer transactions are faster, human error has been removed at POS, and the time taken to reconcile daily takings has dropped significantly. MPS have been particularly helpful in putting the Tyro system in place. MPS provided, and continue to provide, timely and efficient responses to our requests and have delivered in every area they said they would. All in all, I wish we’d made the change sooner
