WHAT IS EMV?
Europay, Mastercard and Visa, EMV, are the companies that initiated the inegration of chip cards to heighten the security of customer's cards and saftey of the business during a transaction. The chip card lessens the possibility of credit theft.
THE EMV CHIP
Earlier cards come with replicable black bar code strips located on the back of the card, easy to duplicate once it is swiped through a reader. The new chip contains an encrypted code for every transaction, effectively eliminating chargebacks while protecting the business and customer.
