EMV; the Smart Way for Startups & Small Business to Fight Fraud

The age of traditional credit card processing are declining. In a time of high-level identity theft and data breaches, shoppers and retailers all over the world have rightfully started to demand greater security.

EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa) is chip-based payment technology that will be replacing sign-and-swipe credit cards. These cards now come included with a smart chip that will be scanned and authorized during all transactions.

Without an established customer base, and most people being first time customers, it’s crucial for startups to give off a good impression. If a startup were fall victim to payment fraud it could have a crippling effect before the company ever has a chance to get off the ground.
