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.

We like using Tyro recommended by MPS, for a number of reasons; firstly we like the personalised service that we receive from the Tyro team and in addition we find that the customer portal is particularly customer friendly and our admin team find this very useful. One aspect that makes for quick reconciliation of deposits is the ease with which all our outlets are clearly named and not just referred to as a store number!
