2019 Conexxus EMV Survey Report:  From June 10 to July 8, 2019 Conexxus fielded an electronic survey to determine the level of preparedness of the US convenience and retail fueling industry for the EMV liability shift for both automated fueling dispensers (AFDs) set to take place in October 2020 and all other transactions which went into effect in October 2015. This document details the results of the EMV Preparedness Survey.

Resources And Guidance For EMV Implementation in a C-Store Environment:  This Conexxus white paper provides links for educational information and frequently asked questions regarding EMV implementations in the U.S.  It is intended to assist members of the petroleum and convenience industry to find information related to EMV.  While many EMV resources exist, the resource links included in this document were found to be the most helpful and relevant to merchants in the petroleum and convenience industry.  This document covers EMV Basics, Up Front Decisions (decisions that must be made in advance of EMV implementation such as debit routing, contactless, optimizing transactions, fallback, and manual entry), Cardholder Data Considerations, Testing and Certification, and Ongoing Care and Maintenance (e.g., chargebacks, kernel maintenance).  Also included are other considerations that may be applicable to your particular business (ATMs, unattended payment terminals, tips, gratuities, card not present).

EMV Webinars: Each month Conexxus hosts complimentary public webinars on a variety of topics, including webinars on EMV.  Please visit our Webinar Library to view recordings and upcoming webinars, which can be filtered by topic.
