EMV DEADLINE DELAYED Until April 2021! But Retailers Advised To Stay On Schedule

EMV Delayed

EMV Deadline Moved To April 2021

Earlier this month, Visa and several other leading credit card issuers announced that they will delay the October 2020 EMV liability shift to April 17, 2021 due to complications caused by the worldwide coronavirus pandemic.

In a May 4th article that appeared on convenience.org, it states Visa had initially declined NACS request to delay as it was still monitoring the situation. NACS had requested a new deadline be set after the crisis passed and market forces could be reevaluated but Visa moved forward with setting a new deadline of April 17, 2021.

The six-month cushion will benefit retailers in varying ways, some greater than others, depending on their progress towards EMV compliance. For those that have the ball rolling, the delay may eliminate their lapse in compliance, keeping their businesses safe from fraud chargebacks. Retailers that haven’t started will still experience a gap in fraud liability protection.

“Most Gilbarco distributors suggest placing orders sooner rather than later,” said Chris Whitley – Gilbarco Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “Getting on a distributor’s schedule now will help that retailer understand how much the new delay really benefits their business.”

Meanwhile—despite the recent announcement of the EMV deadline delay—many retailers are staying the course, despite the commercial disruption posed by COVID-19. Businesses that already put their EMV plans in motion are now seeing the fruits of their preparations – even during the pandemic.

How Much Could Your Cellulose Filter Actually Cost You?

Cellulose filters may be cheaper than our other filters, but it’s important to understand what that lower price tag means.
Cellulose filters provide no protection from water, which continues to reign as the largest threat to your fuel supply. When you choose Cellulose, you’re vulnerable to the many issues caused by water-contaminated fuel, including:
Cost1Equipment Damage
Excess water in your fuel can cause microbial growth, rust, etching, and corrosion—all of which can severely damage your equipment over time.
Downtime
Damaged equipment, fuel violations, and service calls all lead to pump downtime, which directly impacts your profitability.
Cost3Lost Customers
Customers who receive water-contaminated fuel are not going to be happy customers. Unhappy customers don’t come back. And in a world where those unhappy customers can share their bad experience with thousands of people with the click of a button, it’s more important than ever to guard against bad fuel.
Vehicle DamageCost4
Water-contaminated fuel can cause serious issues in customers’ vehicles, resulting in repair bills they don’t want to pay and frustration they won’t soon forget.
Cost5Violations & Fines
In most states, customers who suspect they’ve received contaminated fuel can file a complaint with their local Weights & Measures department. If that department determines there is water in your fuel, you can quickly find yourself bagging pumps, paying associated fines, and facing expensive service bills to fix the issue.
