“We are pleased to announce that Merchant Link has achieved U.S. EMV certifications from TSYS using the Ingenico family of devices,” Laura Meck, Merchant Link’s EVP, Sales and Marketing, shared. “Having an EMV certification with TSYS has paved the way for merchants using TSYS, its bank partners / customers and processors utilizing the TSYS gateway, for scope reduction and reduced card-present chargebacks. Merchant Link has maintained its commitment to providing its customers with options. The goal with EMV is to continue to fulfill that promise through our processing and device partners,” Meck continued.
