Phillips 66 EMV-compliant at fuel dispenser

Phillips 66 now has outdoor EMV-compliant software, Gilbarco Veeder-Root announced, following six months of beta-testing Passport version 11.02 software.

The intent is to protect customers and become EMV-compliant ahead of the Oct. 1, 2020 deadline. After the deadline, retailers will be held financially responsible for fraudulent transactions.

“Providing capability to process more secure transactions at the pump is the newest benefit to the Phillips 66 suite of technological advantages, along with items like our state-of-the-art mobile payment app,” said Todd Horinek, Phillips 66 director of payments technology.

“We are excited to offer Gilbarco’s Passport solution and be one of the first companies to provide outside EMV capability to our network of Phillip 66, 76 and Conoco branded sites.” Gilbarco was the first to release software enabling outdoor EMV and has since completed more than 6 million chip card transactions at the dispenser.

“With the October 2020 liability shift fast approaching, we continue to prioritise our development efforts to ensure Gilbarco customers have the ability to eliminate fraud at their sites,” said Chris Whitley, Gilbarco Veeder-Root vice president of marketing and sales.

"Partnering with Phillips 66 to enable outdoor EMV provides their retailers the opportunity to beat the compliance deadline with a seamless set of products" said Whitley.
