Fantastic Sams selected EPX as its preferred payment processor based on its service offerings, as well as its enterprise pricing model and Tier 1 Payment Solution. Fantastic Sams has negotiated a very favorable corporate pricing rate with EPX on behalf of the Fantastic Sams brand.
With this agreement, EPX provides interchange pass-through pricing and a reduced price for payment authorizations. EPX performs automated least-cost Real-Time Interchange Analysis on each transaction to ensure the lowest interchange costs for each transaction you handle.
By now you might have heard the term “EMV,” which refers to the small chip that is embedded on recently issued payment cards. What you might not know is that your company is liable for providing an EMV-capable solution that can handle an EMV card when a customer presents it. The credit card associations mandated a liability shift back in October 2015, which makes the merchant liable in cases of fraud where the customer presented an EMV card but where the merchant did not have an EMV-certified solution in place.
EPX has extensive experience with integrating clients to EPX’s secure EMV-certified solutions, so you will never have to worry about the EMV liability shift, once you are processing with EPX.
