What is chip card technology, and why does it matter?
Sometimes referred to as “chip cards,” “chip and PIN” or “chip and signature,” these payment cards come with a chip embedded in them. The technology is more secure than what’s found in traditional magnetic stripe cards, which can all too easily be skimmed for card-present counterfeit card fraud purposes.
The most notable difference to you and the cardholder is when using chip cards and chip-enabled devices, the card never leaves the cardholders’ hand, and it’s inserted rather than swiped. Depending on your business needs, we can help you find the payment solution that’s right for you.
