BANKING AND CREDIT NEWS-August 4, 2017-New B2 Magstripe Card application eliminates need for physical magnetic stripe cards


B2 Payment Solutions Inc. (B2), an organization providing best-in-class products and services for the payment industry, has announced a new B2 Magstripe Card Simulator, which is a software application designed to simulate magnetic stripe cards without the need for an actual physical card, the company said.

This tool can be used to replace hundreds of magnetic stripe cards required for testing and certification of payment card acceptance devices.

Ideal for anyone that processes and accepts magnetic stripe cards, the B2 Magstripe Card Simulator allows users to store XML images of all their test cards in one convenient place via the B2 software application.

By doing this, users can reduce their physical card inventory as well as the risk of lost or expired cards; users can also create their own card images thus eliminating the wait time for new cards to be shipped by processors when being modified/replaced due to expiry date or PAN (primary account number) changes.

The B2 Magstripe Card Simulator application is fully integrated with the UL SmartStripe -- which is a probe testing device that emulates magstripe cards. By offering a package solution, users will have a completely automated process that will allow them to simply select the desired card image using the B2 Magstripe Card Simulator and swipe or hold the UL SmartStripe in the slot of a card acceptance device to process a magstripe transaction.
