Three things every business owner needs to know about EMV:

  1. What is EMV? – EMV Stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa. It’s the Global Standard for Chip Technology used to authenticate credit card transactions.

  2. EMV – Is it Mandatory? – No, EMV is not mandatory. (Non-EMV transactions are subject to fallback automatic chargeback.)

  3. What is the Liability Shift? – The liability Shift took place October 2015, and transactions after that date are now the responsibility of the merchant for “FRAUD”.

If you accept a chip card in your business without a chip reader and the cardholder claims that the card is stolen or the transaction is fraudulent, your business is open to getting chargebacks. (Jotform capture with Mailchimp: Name, Email, Phone, Business Name)
