MasterCard Unique Terminal ID Mandate

Recently, we made changes to the SP-1 for Coffee & Restaurant point of sale system to remain complaint with the MasterCard Unique Terminal ID Mandate.   This mandate is mandatory for stores that use two or more point of sale terminals in a location.  The mandate requires that we pass along the terminal ID to the credit card processor.   The reason for this is that the unique terminal identifier will allow the transaction to be completely and accurately tracked back to the terminal the transaction was placed on.  This will allow your credit card company and MasterCard to more accuratly identify potential fraud in the eventof a breach.   The deadline is July 15, 2014.

At SelbySoft, we take this stuff pretty seriously.  Because of this, we made a change to allow our software to transmit the appropriate information when required.   We are reaching out to any of our customers that may be affected by this change to update them.    At this point, MasterCard has stated that there will be some penalty for infractions.  It is our hope that we can help our customers avoid any of these infractions.

Please contact us for more information.
