Brand terminal integration services

Payment schemes require acquirers to complete the terminal certification prior to accepting cards issued for their brands. Acquirers must submit test results or, in certain limited situations, a paper request to a brand accredited service provider like FIME to conduct formal approval service. When this process is passed, the brand issues a letter of certification.
