As you know, Netcom PaySystem recently announced that many of our payment solutions will now incorporate EMV payment capability. This means that merchants will now have devices that are EMV capable – delivering the latest in fraud prevention technology. But what is EMV and how does it affect my business?
EMV is an abbreviation that stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa and is an internationally adopted payments standard that utilizes microchip technology to authenticate and process debit card and credit card transactions. EMV chip cards contain embedded microprocessors that provide strong transaction security features and other application capabilities not possible with traditional magnetic stripe cards. Today, EMV Co manages, maintains and enhances the specifications. EMVCo is owned by American Express, Discover, JCB, MasterCard, UnionPay, and Visa.
What are the benefits of EMV?
The biggest and most important benefit of EMV is the reduction in card fraud resulting from counterfeit, lost and stolen cards. EMV also provides interoperability with the global payments infrastructure – consumers with EMV chip payment cards can use their card on any EMV-compatible payment terminal. EMV technology supports enhanced cardholder verification methods and, unlike magnetic stripe cards, EMV payment cards can also be used to secure online payment transactions.
