FIME has created a range of FIME Test Cards for testing the terminal payment application in an acquirer’s use-environment.

Components

NIV and TIP test cards are available in 4 sets (binders) which
contain different Subsets (a kit of cards), each one dedicated to
specific purposes. Additional individual NIV & TIP test cards can also be ordered as needed.

  • NIV Contact: Subset 3, Subset 5, Subset 13 (for Sweden only)
  • TIP Contact: Subset M-TIP, Subset 1, Subset UK Domestic
  • TIP Contact Interop: Subset Interop Functional, Subset Interop Confidence
  • NIV & TIP Contactless: Subset 6 Credit, Subset 6 Debit, Subset 7M, Subset 8M

 

Functionalities

  • Contact Subsetsare used to test the non regression of EMV functions within payments terminal applications, to validate the dual-message interface between the acquirer host and MasterCard network systems, and to ensure that your terminal meets the M/Chip MasterCard brand requirements.
  • Interop Subsetsare used to test your terminal’s capabilities in terms of interoperability, to reproduce specific issues that have occurred in the field. They detect issues at an early stage allowing the acquirer to ensure that the terminal will be able to handle acceptance correctly and avoid these issues in the field.
  • Contactless Subsets or PayPass Subsetsare used to test the non regression of PayPass functions of the payment terminal application (PayPass – Magstripe or PayPass – M/Chip) to ensure that your terminal meets the MasterCard PayPass or Maestro PayPass Acquirer Implementation Requirements.

MasterCard has defined an approval process to support acquirer needs when testing the terminal payment application in the acquirer’s environment of use. The goal for the acquirer following the Network Interface Validation (NIV) and the Terminal Integration Process (TIP) is to obtain a letter of approval from MasterCard stating that the application can perform transactions according to EMV specifications and MasterCard specific brand requirements. FIME Test Cards enable you to carry out the necessary tests to ensure you obtain MasterCard approval, whether you are an acquirer or a member service provider performing the acquiring.
