The benefits of point to point encryption

Point to point encryption is next generation encryption – the gold standard of the industry

In retail and hospitality around 75% of payments are via card or contactless devices. It’s vital that businesses can take payments quickly and securely. 

Annually £567 million is lost in card fraud. That’s in 2.8 million transactions! 

78% of organisations encounter payments fraud!

Why take the risk? Our point to point encryption industry leading. Few other providers give you that level of security and that’s how we know you are better protected with Kernow Merchant Services!

As long as you are on point to point encryption there is no requirement to take the annual PCIDSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards test).

Protect your income with the world's best payment security.


It’s important in pretty much every aspect of life. And that goes for payments, too. In fact, two-thirds of businesses we asked said that it was the number one consideration when choosing a new card payments provider.

That’s why all of our terminals come with point-to-point-encryption as standard. Designed to protect you and your customers, it’s the gold-standard in payment security.

But don’t take our word for it. The PCI Security Council says that it ‘guarantees the strongestencryption protection for your business’. It’s peace of mind, made easy.
