Help keep your payments secure with Smart/Chip Card/ EMV Technology
All of our Ingenico and VeriFone terminal lines carry EMV technology for improved card/cardholder validation for PIN-based transactions as well as EMV chip cards, that help protect you and your customers from counterfeit card fraud.
Sometimes referred to as “chip cards,” “chip and PIN “ or “chip and signature,” the embedded EMV card technology improves security over the legacy magnetic stripe technology, which can all too easily be skimmed for counterfeit purposes. EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa) is a global standard for payment cards using chip technology allowing you better card/cardholder authentication.
Benefits of EMV Technology
- More powerful card authentication to protect against counterfeit cards
- Cardholder verification to protect against lost/stolen cards
- Fewer fraud-related chargebacks from stolen/skimmed cards
Your customers benefit as well, with the greater peace of mind that comes with improved technology, and a seamless experience while they checkout, whether their card is swiped, inserted or tap-and-go.
