Credit Card Equipment

Directive Statement

Payment Card Operations is the sole source for UF departments and units to acquire payment card processing devices and implementations.  Departments are prohibited from purchasing processing equipment without explicit written permission from Payment Card Operations (PCO).

Reason for Directive

Who Must Comply?

All University departments whose personnel store, process or transmit cardholder information. This also applies to units that outsource the processing of payment card information to third party vendors.

Procedures

Departments are required to contact Payment Card Operations for a needs analysis to determine the most beneficial implementation. This includes the review of  currently available terminals and pricing.

If a department would like to offer customers a way to make online credit card payments (eCommerce), please view Accepting Credit Card Payments via eCommerce.
