The panel of reference cards depends on the terminal type:
• M/Stripe terminal: a panel of 6 reference cards (5 M/Stripe and 1
M/Chip) is used.
• M/Chip terminal: 7 cards (2 M/Chip and 5 M/Stripe) are used.
NB: These numbers may change upon MasterCard’s request.
A terminal debugging session takes 2 days. Testing can be scheduled
within an average of 3 weeks after your formal acceptance of our proposal.
In the end of the testing session, FIME sends you a final standard report.
Note that this report will not mention the brand name of each card
according to our MasterCard non discloser agreement.
In case of failures, we will be glad to help you further with expertise and
supply a report that provides transaction analysis. This kind of report is very
useful to explain failures occurred with cards. We can also perform re-
testing for the units with which failures occurred once your improvements
have been introduced to the reader.
