Living with the big EMV switch!

Millions of credit and debit cards in the United States have EMV chips embedded in them. The number of individuals and businesses using the technology is expected to rise tremendously in the next couple of years. An increasing number of companies are making efforts to replace or upgrade their existing Point-of-Sales (PoS) systems to deal with the growing use of EMV technology in the United State and other parts of the world.

The use of EMV technology offers several attractive benefits which are drawing both small and large businesses toward them. The adoption of EMV based chip cards can dramatically reduce, if not eliminate, card counterfeiting and other types of fraud associated with making electronic payments.

Consumers have responded very positively to the introduction of smart EMV chip cards. Most people view EMV payment systems as a more secure and reliable way to make payments than the old magnetic stripe technology which served as the dominant contactless payment for many years.

However, the downside is that the vendors and retailers must have modern PoS terminals to deal with these cards. Businesses that hesitate to adopt this emerging technology run the risk of being left behind and penalized.
