All rights reserved. 2 Electronic card payments and role of Rahaxi Card owners like banks and credit card companies define their own credit/debit cards that today are smart cards with chip (EMV). Card payment terminal vendors manufacture EMV payment terminals, which are capable of verifying the card and pin code and create a payment transaction record. Known vendors are for example Hypercom, Thyron, Spectra. In order to be usable the terminal also need an application supporting the merchant sales transaction following local regulations (set by local Banker’s association). Banks offer verification and acquiring of payment transactions and manage risks. The operation and services are local country by country. In practice banks acquire card payments only with their own cards. International credit card companies use specialized local companies offering verification, acquiring and forwarding of payment transactions and manage risks, for example CEKAB and Luottokunta. Card payment processors like Rahaxi provide merchants with payment terminals, applications to the terminals, connection to the processors host that routes the payment transactions to the banks and acquirers who then pays the money to the merchants

In addition the local Banker’s Association gives additional local requirements. Today every card payment terminal, and payment application has to be certified for each market. The PCI-standard (Payment Card Industry) and PCI DSS (Data Securtiy Standard) are international payment card standards supported by the international credit card companies, thy direct the handling of payment card handling for parties involved. The certification has to be validated annually. The standard is also evolving, for example this week a new addition PCI PA-DSS has been introduced. The EU Commission has recently created the SEPA standard (Single European Payment Area) and the European Payments Council (EPC) administers an supervises the standard. All cards will now gradually be made according to the SEPA standard. Existing EMV card payment terminals already manage to read SEPA cards. In the coming years this will change the card payment business.
