Getting Started With CommerceDriver™ for Android®

The CommerceDriver™ makes implementing EMV technology faster and easier by combining technical, operational and strategic components into a fully integrated, tested and production-ready solution.

Meet all EMV Level 3 compliance requirements and instantly enable PCI-compliant transactions with end-to-end encryption using the CommerceDriver™ from EVO Snap*.

How it Works

Like a printer driver, the pre-certified Commerce Driver™ SDK installs alongside your software application – adding EMV transaction processing to your Android®-based POS systems. The CommerceDriver™ facilitates all transactional communication with the EVO Payments global processing platforms and approved hardware devices to isolate payment data and keep it separate from the software application.

Advantages of the CommerceDriver™:

  1. 1. Easy to install – similar to a printer driver
  2. 2. Pre-certified, decreasing your time to market
  3. 3. Reduces PCI Compliance scope and liability for merchants
  4. 4. Provides Point to Point Encryption for all transactions
  5. 5. EVO maintained – no ongoing maintenance costs
