AIMSI credit card information

AIMsi no longer comes into contact with cardholder data. This means that AIMsi is considered ‘Out of Scope’ and PA-DSS (Payment Application Data Security Standard) no longer applies. Please be aware that merchants still need to operate their business in a PCI compliant manner regardless of the POS application.

Tri-Technical Systems does not sell any EMV hardware devices. All EMV hardware can be obtained directly from your processing partner.

5.0  If you use one of the carts integrated payment gateways, the credit card/token will no longer be brought into AIMsi. If you do not use one of the carts gateways, the credit card will be turned into a token during the carts checkout process and the token will be stored in AIMsi so that you can charge the card/token in AIMsi. Since the cart now creates the token during the checkout process, you will still get the credit card token into AIMsi even of the customer elects not to store the card in the shopping cart.
 

 

AIMsi v12

 If you are using integrated credit card processing in AIMsi

1.0   
Open menu option Maintenance>Ledger >Credit Card Payment Categories.

2.0   
Enter a ‘Credit Card Payment Default Desc’. This is what appears as the payment method to initiate an integrated card transaction. Since the hardware devices are consumer facing you will not know what card brand the customer is using until after they swipe/dip/tap their card. To initiate a card transaction you will select the description that you enter in ‘Credit Card Payment Desc’ as the payment method.

3.0 Enter the corresponding category number for each of the card brands that you accept. Do this for Payments, Returns and Auto Pays if applicable. Once a card transaction is complete the generic ‘Credit Card Payment Desc’ will be replaced with the appropriate category based on this setup screen. Click the Save button.

4.0 In previous versions of AIMsi you probably had two versions of each credit card payment method. You probably had one called Visa that initiated a credit card transaction. And you probably had another one called Previously Authorized Visa that you used if the transaction had already been approved by some other means or to record autopay transactions. During the upgrade the payment methods that were setup to initiate credit card transactions have been changed to ‘Regular Payment’ methods. So now you most likely have two ‘Regular Payment’ Visa payment methods. We do not recommend that you delete one of them since that will cause reports and history to no longer be associated with a payment method. We recommend that you run the Merge Payment Method program that can be found under menu option Maintenance>Ledger>Utilities. This program will merge two payment categories and remove the old one.

5.0 On the credit card tab of each workstation record in AIMsi select the appropriate POS and Auto/Web Pay Gateways.

6.0 Please train your staff to use the correct payment method to accept credit card payments. To help with this we have automatically setup system variable CreditCardPaymentCatWarning to give a warning if an employee selects a credit card payment category that does not initiate a credit card transaction. You can also set up security levels on these payment categories so that a manager has to override if an employee tries to select one.
