interoperability with existing systems. The card sets are available for
merchants, POS (point-of-sale) developers, value-added resellers (VARs),
independent software operators (ISOs), processors and acquirers. These
new cards work with the major processors. B2 cards can be white-labelled

  • UL UAT EUR EMV Test Card Set: Developed for the European
    market, this test card set includes 16 cards – including contact,
    contactless and fallback cards. This set includes test cards from the
    following payment brands: Amex, Discover, Diners, Mastercard (Credit,

happy to now offer our customers an expanded portfolio of test cards
that now include card sets for the UK and European markets," said Bruce
Murray, president of B2. "Physical test cards are extremely helpful to
all parties within the payment transaction process. It's very important
that acquirers, POS software developers and merchants test their
interoperability of their systems to ensure that these payment
acceptance devices work within the changing payment infrastructures
before launching solutions into the market for consumer use."

B2 also provides a range of card, POS, ATM and host test tools that will
