Fully PCI Compliant MyCard© System

MyCard uses the latest POS hardware – EMV, ApplePay, NFC devices (GooglePay, Samsung Pay, etc), mobile, ‘dip’, ‘tap’, and ‘swipe’ Hardware.

There are two variants to the MyCard© System

  1. MyCard EMV©

EMV terminals support a wide range of transactions, including support for ‘dip’ transactions (where an EMV ‘chip’ card is inserted into the EMV terminal); ‘swipe’ transactions (where a credit card is swiped into the EMV terminal); and ‘tap’ where the NFC (Near Field Communications protocol that supports ApplePay, GooglePay, Samsung etc) embedded in a credit card or mobile phone is placed near the EMV terminal.  The combination of MyPMS integrated with an EMV terminal provides a greater level of security. 

The MyCard EMV©  is an integrated Lodging application using encryption.  We have two certifications for EMV options:

  • Using Heartland Payment Systems and VersioPay we can support both EMV and E-Commerce (what we call ‘Traditional MyCard) with a single account (MID) and batch process.  EMV devices supported can be viewed on our hardware page.

  • Using TSYS, we support a single account (MID) using a separate Terminal ID for the EMV than for the optional ‘Traditional MyCard’ (card not present transactions). It is a single account (1 MID) but the EMV batches separate from the ‘card not present’ transactions.  The TSYS solution supports PAX EMV devices using Company name: “BookingCenter”, Product: “EMV MyPMS”, Version: “1.0”.  PAX EMV devices supported can be viewed on our hardware page.

Traditional MyCard© System

Traditional MyCard© system works with merchant accounts setup by any merchant processing bank or ISV that can board an account using the TSYS/Global, VisaNet, or Vital network our ‘lodging’ gateway is certified with. These accounts work with both ‘card present’ transactions – using a card swiper to enter credit cards of Guests or Companies – as well as ‘card not present‘ events such as Self Check-in/out or Booking Engine deposits; entered manually by a User; from a phone/fax message, etc. Keep in mind, swiping is no longer recommended by Visa or Mastercard.

The Traditional MyCard©  gateway uses the Vital VirtualNet SSL with our certification under Traditional MyCard© system the Company name: “BookingCenter”, Product: “MyPMS”, Version: “3.5

Differences between Traditional MyCard©and MyCard EMV©

All cards added to the software are authorized with an auth amount defined by the property when adding new cards to MyPMS.  Once a card is entered via an EMV terminal, you no longer view the full credit card numbers. The device generates a token that is used for all following payments, auths and credits.  The tokenized card number is stored in the MyCard EMV© device or service. This tokenization increases the security to your guests as well as provides tighter security for your property and staff against credit card fraud. 

There are four reasons why a property would have both MyCard variants used concurrently:
