Chip technology is becoming the global standard for payment cards, and with good reason. The Chip card offers benefits to every party involved in a transaction. Consumers. Financial institutions. And, yes, merchants.
Even if you have already begun to accept Chip cards, this section includes valuable information on what it means for your business. We explain how Chip technology works, describe its advantages, and show you how to participate.
When you are ready to get started with your own Chip program you can contact your acquiring bank or your local MasterCard® representative directly on the web. While this is a high-level guide to Chip acceptance, detailed benefits and issues will depend on your individual circumstances, which you can discuss with them.
