Ask the Expert: Are You Ready For the EMV Revolution?

Brendan Hickey, Solupay Processing Solutions | Linktunity Expert |

EMV is a form of contactless payment and is now the global standard for inter-operation of integrated circuit cards, or “chip cards.”  You might also hear EMV referred to as “chip cards,” “chip and PIN,” and “chip and signature.” The term EMV comes from the developers of this technology – Europay, Mastercard, and Visa. Some credit/debit cards already use this technology in the U.S., while other regions of the world such as Europe, China and Canada have been using it for years. EMV uses a small microprocessor that’s embedded into a credit or debit card. Banks and credit card companies want you to use them because they’re more secure than magnetic strip cards.
