How to Upgrade Your Gas Station Without Breaking the Bank

All over the world, gas station owners have been hit with high expenses from renovating, EMV-compliance, and keeping up with the gas prices. Consumers have also been weary of whether or not they want to pay at a gas station since many haven’t upgraded to be EMV-compliant. However, gas station owners who wish to upgrade cannot afford the costs and are losing customers.
There are many ways in which EMV makes transactions more secure at a gas station. Europay, Mastercard, and Visa (EMV) is a technology that stores the cardholder’s information on a magnetic chip. It can only be read by special readers, making copying and stealing the card’s information more difficult. This technology has helped reduce fraud rates by as much as 76% in card-present environments. Gas stations that haven’t upgraded are more subject to consumers using fraudulent card payment methods.
However, implementing EMV can be expensive, and it is hard for retailers to do renovations and lose business for days, if not weeks. Installing EMV-compliant readers at the pumps can require either replacing the pumps and/or lots of digging and mess. If retailers want to convert their fueling point terminals, it can cost between $6,000 and $10,000 per pump. Also, if older pumps need to be replaced, retailers incur additional costs by purchasing a new pump and digging into the concrete.
