Purchase stickers to put on the pump or signs to put in the window to let customers know that you are EMV compliant.

SHELL NOTICE OF OUTDOOR EMV MONTHLY NON-COMPLIANCE FEES
The purpose of this letter is to provide notice of potential, monthly non-compliance fees and how they will be assessed. Please be reminded that pursuant to Section 12 of the Shell Transaction Card Guide – and pursuant to a prior written notice to you dated March 25, 2020 – you were informed that wholesalers may be charged non-compliance fees for each non-compliant location until the location becomes EMV compliant.
Accordingly, following the liability shift, Shell will also implement a monthly non-compliance fee for each location not fully operating with EMV as of May 1, 2021. The new fee will begin at $250/month/site on May 1, 2021. On July 1, 2021, the fee will increase to $500/month/site. Each location’s non-compliance fee will be administered to the wholesaler’s account beginning in May and will continue for subsequent months until the location is EMV compliant. Additional fee increases following July 1, 2021, will be subject to future announcement. These fees will help offset additional costs to Shell to maintain and operate two EPOS system platforms until all locations in the Shell network transition to the EMV standard.
*Northwest Pump is not liable for products to show up before the EMV deadline. Lead times have been pushed out due to COVID-19.
