Let’s start with the basics- what is EMV?
EMV payments leverage a computer chip located on the front of the payment card to transmit data from the card to the card reader. This chip calculates a unique data packet for each transaction reducing the value of any data that can be stolen out of a payment system.
What is the April 2021 deadline?
On April 17, 2021 card issuing banks will NO LONGER absorb chargebacks from fraudulent transactions that occur at the gas dispensers who are not EMV compliant. This is why EMV chip readers will be vital when it comes to credit card fraud and chargebacks OR your business will be absorbing the financial blow without any further assistance from the banks.
What are the benefits?
1. Improved security (plus fraud reduction).
2. Reduced cost of chargebacks by avoiding the liability shift.
3. Customer card security.
4. Brand protection.
