These days, retail gas stations are almost forced to run on low margins and keep expenses down to stay profitable due to the highly competitive nature of the business. It’s always nice to have affordable options when needed repairs come down the pike to the equipment that provides your bread and butter. This is also true for those small service companies and independent service technicians that don’t have big operating budgets as well.

Ignoring the October 2020 deadline for EMV at the pump could cost you more than upgrading
The October 2020 deadline to upgrade your equipment to the EMV standard is just around the corner and will be here before you know it! If you haven’t addressed your EMV needs as of yet, you should start right now! Not only will there be a crunch on equipment as the deadline approaches, there will be an even bigger crunch on the available service companies and technicians qualified to perform your required upgrades before you hit the deadline wall of October 2020!
Missing this deadline will be very costly to those who don’t act at all. Don’t expect the deadline to be pushed out again as there is extreme concern by consumers when it comes to the security of their personal information and the credit card companies are listening! But more importantly to retailers is the HUGE liability shift of chargebacks from the credit card companies to YOU, the retailers who don’t upgrade; that’s a financial hit that will certainly be felt immediately. Currently, gas stations and c-stores are some of the weakest links in the chain at this time for being non-EMV compliant and with the plethora of information available on all matters related to EMV, there is no reason to hesitate any longer.
Jerry Soverinsky, a contributor to NACS Magazine has a great article in the December 2019 issue (click here to see the PDF of Jerry’s article). Jerry points out the associated costs for those who wait and those who ignore the deadline, which could very likely cost you more than the upgrade itself! Jerry’s article is quite the read and very worth a look if you are weighing the options of upgrading now or waiting. The article has facts, figures and some great graphs to lay out what’s at stake.
And of course, the John W. Kennedy Company is here to help with your migration by offering you the best options from the leader in EMV Forecourt and Point Of Sale technology: Click on the images below to get an overview of some of your options:
