Dynamic Card Solutions, an Englewood, Colo.-based card provider recently acquired by Datacard Group, has announced that its mobile payments personalization platform now supports Tyfone’s SideTap MicroSD secure memory card for NFC payments.
The CardWizard Perso-to-Go platform personalizes at the branch or back office level, cardholder information onto the chip embedded in Tyfone’s MicroSD secure memory card. The card can then operate in any standard memory card slot within mobile phones across all operating systems.
No over-the-air personalization is required and the Perso-to-Go provides instant activation capabilities so the device can be immediately used for contactless point-of-sale purchases, including open-loop channels or closed-loop retail applications.
The CardWizard platform can securely personalize any NFC payment form factor, including embedded NFC chips in mobile phones, various contactless stickers, key fobs, and MicroSD cards.
The technology also meets security requirements for both EMV and MSD contactless specifications and complies with Visa and MasterCard security recommendations.
