Test phases and cycles

To certify your Google Wallet open loop payments, complete the following phases:

Phase 1: Pre-launch
  • Implement transit operator EMV enhancements.
  • Ensure that the firmware and software for all terminals are up to date.
  • Provide access for Google to test them in a lab or in real stations.
  • Send testers with the top 20 Android-powered devices in the region to perform tests.
  • Test stability and tap success rates.
  • Perform card verification method (CVM) checks.
  • Address all launch-blocking bugs.
Phase 2: Post-launch
  • Keep terminals up to date with the latest specification.
  • To identify issues, continue tests at a reduced frequency.
  • Monitor tap trends over time.
  • To increase awareness, implement marketing and promotions.
