Mastercard Formal Approval Services

Card Personalization Validation

CPV aims at ensuring that personalization values of Mastercard branded cardholder devices are compliant with Mastercard requirements. Correctly personalized cardholder devices ensures the highest possible acceptance quality of cardholder devices on acceptance devices. CPV services apply to Mastercard branded contact and contactless technical products with various form factors (e.g. Cards, Mobile phones, Stickers and Wearables).

Mastercard Terminal Integration Process

These type of service tests payment terminals in an acquirer environment. If it is done as part of a Mastercard implementation project then the Network Interface Validation (NIV) has to be successfully done before the M-TIP service. M-TIP is to be performed on each payment terminal configuration in a specific acquirer environment before deployment of that terminal in the field. M-TIP projects can be initiated for payment terminals, having a contact interface, a contactless interface, or both interfaces, like for example POS, mobile POS (mPOS), ATM, BBT & Cardholder Activated Terminals (CAT).
