Cardholder Disclosure

EMV (Europay, MasterCard®, Visa®) chip cards are more secure than magnetic stripes and they are simple to use. These cards are based on a global card payment standard (EMV) and are currently used in more than 80 countries. Chip cards and their terminals work together to keep your in-store payments safe. During a transaction, a unique one-time code is created in order to approve the transaction. This makes it nearly impossible to replicate in a counterfeit card.

Things to remember:

  • Large merchants will be the first to replace their old terminals with chip-activated ones, with smaller merchants to follow later.
  • Use your chip card wherever Visa is accepted. It also has a magnetic stripe for terminals that do not have an EMV slot yet.
  • You can still swipe your card wherever needed, or use it online or over-the-phone as usual.
  • If you swipe your card at a chip-enabled terminal, it will prompt you to insert the card in the chip slot.
  • Whether you insert or swipe your card, you are always protected from unauthorized transactions with Visa’s Zero Liability Policy.
  • Your card is more secure when traveling internationally because of the chip.
  • Chip technology helps prepare for innovations like mobile commerce, which helps ensure payments in the future will be secure and convenient.

How to use a chip card:

1. Insert the chip end of the card into the terminal instead of swiping the card.
2. Keep your card in the terminal to complete your purchase.
3. Don’t forget to take your card when you leave.
