Payment Upgrades at Petro-Card 24
June 20, 2023
Written By Adam Buckallew
A major upgrade to the credit card readers at MFA Oil Petro-Card 24 locations is nearing completion. The company has activated chip card readers and pin pads at more than 75% of its Petro-Card 24 fueling sites. The MFA Oil maintenance team is visiting each site to verify that the card reader hardware is functioning and the software is up to date. The upgrade activates Europay, Mastercard and Visa (EMV) protections that keep MFA Oil in line with requirements from the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council.
Moving forward, Petro-Card 24 customers using chipped cards will no longer swipe to pay. Instead, chipped cards will need to be inserted and left in the reader while the customer follows the on-screen prompts on the payment kiosk. Customers paying with MFA Oil Petro-Card 24 or Preferred Customer credit cards will continue to swipe them as usual to pay.
Receipts will now be easier to obtain at the upgraded sites as well. Rather than having to reswipe or insert a card, customers can now press a yellow receipt button on the kiosk after the transaction has been completed. MFA Oil has made pump-topper signage and screen savers to communicate the change in payment and receipt procedures to its customers.
