INDUSTRY.co.id - Denpasar - The Bali Provincial Representative Office of Bali Province reminded traders regarding the ban on double-cut non-cash transaction to prevent data theft and card information.

"In every card transaction may only be swiped once in the machine 'Electronic Data Capture' (EDC) and not done other scraping included in the cash register," said Head of Representative of Bank Indonesia Province Bali Causa Iman Karana in Denpasar, Saturday (09/09/2017).

Causa expects people to contribute to avoiding the practice of double bending by maintaining caution in non-cash transactions and not allowing traders to double-cut.

If the public is aware of or experiencing double-cut practices, he appealed to report to Bank Indonesia "Contact Center" 131 stating the name of the merchant and the name of the management bank that can be seen on the EDC machine sticker.

Bank Indonesia, Causa continued, has previously issued a regulation on non-cash card double scraping, namely Bank Indonesia Regulation Number 18/40 / PBI / 2016 on the Implementation of Payment Transaction Processing.

In Article 34 (b), the central bank prohibits payment system operators from misusing customer data and information as well as data and information on payment transactions other than for the purpose of payment processing transactions, including the prohibition of data collection through cash register machines at traders.

In a written announcement, the Communication Department of Bank Indonesia also states that one of the parties in the processing of payment transaction is the "acquirer", ie the bank or institution cooperating with the trader who can process the payment instrument data using the card issued by other parties.

To support the protection of community data, the "acquirer" is obliged to ensure the merchant's compliance with the double bailing ban.

The "Acquirer" is also expected to take decisive action by stopping cooperation with merchants who are still practicing double bumps.

In the interest of reconciling payment transactions, traders and acquirers are expected to use other methods that do not involve double-swipe or double swipe.
