CardConnect offers various integration methods to its PCI Validated Point-to-point encryption (P2PE) solution, Bolt, for secure end-to-end encryption and tokenization. 

Merchants and partners who use this solution significantly reduce their PCI Scope while increasing the security of their cardholder's data. This solution ensures that data is encrypted upon read, rendering it useless to any malware that may be downstream. 

CardConnect manages all encryption keys - no merchant has access to encryption keys. We keep track of all devices in our Terminal Management System (TMS) which allows over-the-air updates, support/troubleshooting insight, and the ability to disable devices, if needed.

CardConnect certifies these solutions with various processors which reduces the complexity of integration for our partners; however, our team will still work to validate your integration before your first merchant goes live on our platform.

Device Integration Process

The device integration process is broken down into the following steps: 

  1. Integrate your application with the appropriate tool/API/SDK for your needs (see left pane).
  2. Using a device provided by CardConnect, test the communication between it (the device) and your application.
  3. Your app will need to retrieve pertinent data (card track data, EMV data, customer information, etc.) and submit it to CardConnect as either:
