What is QIR Certification?

What is QIR Certification?

As of January 12017, POS Nation is QIR certified.

QIR stands for Qualified Integrator and Re-seller. Being QIR certified means that the party with the following qualification has the knowledge and skill set to securely install PA-DSS (Payment Application Data Security Standard) — validated payment applications into merchant environments that meet PCI Data Security Standard compliance. Vendors that should go through the QIR certification program are those that configure and/or install POS software, payment applications, and terminals for merchants. Vendors that also support or service POS software and payment applications for merchants, such as accessing systems remotely and delivering system updates, should go through the QIR certification program.

Secure Payments with a Point of Sale System

At POS Nation, we are qualified to safely and securely install validated payment applications into our customers' stores. More importantly, as our customer, you can operate with peace of mind — knowing that you’re backed by a Qualified Integrator and Re-seller.

Effective as of January 31, 2017, VISA required that all level-four merchants only use QIR certified professionals for point of sale applications and terminal installations. If you have any questions about how Qualified Integrators and Re-sellers can help your business, get in touch at
