EMV Primer

EMV Compliance Begins October 15th

What is EMV?

Although major changes in the U.S. credit card transaction process begin to roll-out in less than one month, many people still don't understand how EMV affects their businesses. In October of 2015, the major credit card providers will begin to embed encrypted microchips into all of their credit cards to enhance their security.

 All retailers who accept credit cards must upgrade their Point-of-Sale (POS) equipment to read the new EMV microchip cards, or they will suffer the liability of any fraudulent transactions they process. The dollar amount of this liability, shifted from the credit card issuer to the retailer, could be substantial. The POS upgrades required for transactions processed inside your store is October 2015 and at the pump by October 2017.

Our point of sale experts are currently working with a number of retailers to explain the full implications of EMV,  analyze their upgrade options, and to devise an affordable plan for this transition.
