Just like magnetic-stripe cards, EMV cards are processed for payment in two steps: card reading and transaction verification. However, with EMV cards, instead of swiping your card at the Point of Sale terminal, you may have to do what is called ‘card dipping’, which means inserting your card into the Point of Sale terminal slot and enter your PIN.
Our Mastercard are Europay, MasterCard® and Visa® (EMV) cards — which is a global standard for cards equipped with computer chips and the technology used to authenticate chip-card transactions. In the wake of increasing rates of counterfeit card fraud, we have migrated to this new technology to protect consumers and reduce the costs of fraud.
It is that small, metallic square you’ll see on new cards. That is a computer chip, and it is what sets it apart from the traditional magnetic-stripe only cards. The magnetic-stripes on traditional debit cards contain unchanging data that are easily cloned by counterfeiters.
Unlike magnetic-stripe cards, every time an EMV card is used for payment, the card chip creates a unique transaction code that cannot be used again.
A personal identification number (PIN) is a 4-digit number that is required to complete a financial transaction.
