EMV® uses embedded microchip technology for authenticating credit and debit card transactions. It has been adopted by all major card brands and is currently in use in more than 80 countries around the world, most recently in the United States. Its adoption worldwide is considered to be critical to the development of a more secure payments industry. 

What is EMV?

EMV is the best available technology for authenticating cards and cardholders. It makes the card virtually impossible to copy, thus reducing the possibility of accepting counterfeit cards. In fact, countries where EMV payments are the norm have seen drastic reductions in card-present fraud.

The chip embedded in the card stores cardholder data and creates a unique value for each transaction. This dynamic authentication makes each transaction unique and more secure. Additionally, EMV chip card transactions may require the use of a PIN to authenticate the cardholder and results in a reduction in credit card fraud through lost or stolen cards.

EMV & Your Business

Businesses that have not yet transitioned to EMV card acceptance should consider doing so to protect themselves and their customers. This typically requires a software update and the installation of an EMV-capable terminal that can handle chip cards. TSYS® is ready to assist you in the transition process.

Important benefits of adopting EMV payment technology for your business include:

Dual Verification

A chip card-enabled terminal validates the card, and the cardholder authenticates that they are the card owner while the card is still in the POS terminal.

Fraud Reduction

Security features built into the chip reduce lost, stolen and counterfeit fraud. Unlike traditional magnetic stripe transactions, the EMV credit card terminals and chip-enabled cards work together to validate the card and cardholder.

Reduce Financial Liability

Prior to the October 2015 POS counterfeit liability shift, card-issuing banks were held responsible for any credit card. Since the shift, businesses that are unable to support chip cards have been held financially responsible if a fraudulent transaction occurs.
