ISO 8583

ISO 8583

ISO 8583

I'm researching about ISO 8583. I want to know about generic or specific points about this topic. I only know that ISO 8583 is a standard refered to comunications...

If someone could give me some information or Web address about this point, I would thank him.

PD. Sorry, but my english is not too well.

RE: ISO 8583

I realize this response is late but the ISO 8583 is a standard for creating and reading financial transaction messages including Point of Sale (POS) transactions, Automated Teller Machines (ATM) and network-to-network, real-time financial transactions.  These messages enable consumers to withdrawal money from ATM's and conduct business in a real-time POS world.

It does not relate to communications standards as ISO 8583 messages can be delivered over almost any standard or legacy communications protocol for the financial industry.

RE: ISO 8583

Hi Meade. Your response isn't late because I am still looking for more information about this topic. If you know, Could you give me some web pages where I can get info about ISO 8583 ?

RE: ISO 8583


I'm even later than the other guys.  We can answer any of the questions you have on ISO 8583 payment messages and we have a Java product called Message Mapper which allows ISO 8583 messages to be understood and reformatted into a message format which can be easily understood (e.g. XML or a fixed message format rather than bit mapped).
