East Providence, RI: The EMV deadline for gas stations and c-stores was reset for the fourth time since 2015 due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Merchants across the country experienced difficulty meeting the past deadlines due to financial constraints and logistical issues. However, the extended EMV deadline of April 17, 2021, is the final chance for gas stations and c-store owners to become compliant to avoid exposure to the financial liability of fraudulent transactions that may take place in their facility.
John W. Kennedy Company is a leading supplier of petroleum equipment and EMV technology that has been educating and helping merchants about EMV technology for several years. The East Providence-based company continues providing the latest solutions to gas station owners rushing to meet the compliance deadline. Merchants are still experiencing difficulties switching to EMV-compliant systems. When asked about the EMV deadline and possible solutions, a representative of the company stated:
“Merchants primarily face two difficulties when making the switch. Of course, the primary factor involves finances— switching to EMV-enabled systems requires an upfront investment. Logistics is also a big factor that comes into play. At John W. Kennedy Company, we’ve partnered with leading names in the industry, including the likes of Gilbarco Veeder-Root, to bring cost-effective and reliable EMV solutions to gas stations and c-stores. They must become EMV-compliant to avoid exposure to financial liability.”
