Curb Credit Card Chaos
Credit Card Processing for the IBM i
he world of payment cards is constantly
changing. IBM i users are challenged finding
native software and processing support. Some
large software companies have even abandoned the
space. The PCI Data Security Standards Council has
recently ramped up audit reporting requirements,
so natively-implemented "remote tokenization" is a
critical, though rare, requirement.
Non-native IBM i patchwork implementations
cause fragmented systems, poorly qualified
transactions, PCI security nightmares and
challenges processing Europay, Mastercard
and Visa (EMV) "chip cards." They waste time,
money and resources on manual reconciliation
of transactions and completing ponderous selfassessment questionnaire audits now required by
PCI for all merchants. Poorly qualified transactions,
lacking proper contents, inflate processing fees.
Not accepting EMV chip cards make the merchant
responsible for all cardholder-refused transactions.
Curbstone, supporting the IBM AS/400 platform
since 2002, offers a Software-as-a-Service transaction
processing engine that increases security while

their entire existing IT infrastructure from PCI scope.
