Turning Off EDC / Native Processing in the Microsoft Dynamics RMS Point of Sale Software
Quite a few Microsoft RMS users have contacted me over the last week regarding the native EDC processing being turned off within the Microsoft Dynamics RMS point of sale software. This type of processing is not secure and no longer supported (or even compliant). As such, these retailers asked how to turn EDC off so they can use Card Defender, Square or a stand alone payment terminal to process debit and credit card transactions.
This video only offers the highlights on how to turn off EDC in Microsoft RMS. Please refer to your users guide, on screen help, or contact me at 208-340-5632 / firstname.lastname@example.org for paid assistance.
Honestly, this is a prime example of how it is getting more difficult to support RMS - we'll keep supporting as long as we can but little by little it will become more and more difficult over the next 3-4 years.
