EMV® Chip

Bolster fraud security and consumer confidence in your business with Thrive Payments EMV Chip Card Acceptance

Thrive Payments (Thrive) helps you stay up-to-date and plan for EMV Chip developments as they affect your business.

EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa) Smart chip technology is a microprocessor chip that stores and protects data. Chip cards are standard payment cards in which this chip is embedded.

EMV chip is targeted to be the global standard for credit and debit card payments, and is part of a global initiative to combat payment data fraud in the card present environment. A cardholder’s confidential data is more secure on a chip enabled payment card than on a magnetic stripe (magstripe) card because, unlike magstripe cards on which the data is static and easily copied, chip (EMV) technology combats counterfeit fraud via dynamic values existing within the chip itself. These values, when verified by the point of sale device, ensure the authenticity of the card. Chip cards make it difficult for fraud organizations to target cardholders and businesses alike.

Increased fraud prevention is a primary reason the industry is moving toward EMV technology. Chip cards make it difficult for fraud organizations to target cardholders and businesses.

The various card brands are setting forth timelines for implementation of EMV chip technology in the U.S.  Depend on Thrive for help in planning EMV Chip strategies for your business.
