First universal retailer payment protocol released

The Association for Retail Technology Standards, the National Retail Federation's technology standards division, and EPASOrg, an association leading card payment standards in Europe, announced a partnership to create an ARTS-EPAS Retailer Payment Protocol Standard.

The standard defines an open interface between a sale system and a payment system in a retail environment, and would enable the separation of the payment function from the point-of-sale application, which will facilitate the certification of the PCI data security guidelines and future implementation of EVM (chip and pin) in the United States. The standard will also provide much greater agility to capitalize on new and emerging payment types such as mobile wallets and other online checkout systems that are migrating to retailers' stores across the world.

The ARTS-EPAS Retailer Payment Protocol will be based on state-of-the-art technologies, such as XML, to ensure interoperability between different sale environments, and was developed by a team of experts from Europe, Canada and the United States.

“With this standard, ARTS breaks our thirteen-year XML tradition and will provide an out-of-the-box interoperable standard to meet the critical need of retailers and solution providers,” said Grant Anderson, co-chair of ARTS Board. “Thanks to EPASOrg, who has in-depth experience with interoperable protocols in both retail and card payment environments, this collaboration will be a great success.”

“This collaboration has paved the way for the issuance of a truly global standard that will benefit all stakeholders of both the retail and card payment industries,” said William Vanobberghen, Secretary General, EPASOrg. “The new standard will ease the further migration towards EMV specifications for retailers across the U.S.”

The resulting specifications replacing today's numerous proprietary protocols will be available for free to any interested stakeholder (terminal manufacturers, Value-added Resellers (VARs), software developers, etc.) beginning in the first quarter of 2012. They will contribute to an open and more competitive market of sale and payment solutions worldwide.

EPASOrg is an international non-profit association founded by key industry players. The mission of EPASOrg is to foster interoperability by agreeing, developing and implementing common protocol specifications related to secure card payments.

The Association for Retail Technology Standards (ARTS), a division of the National Retail Federation, is a retailer-driven international membership organization.
