EMV cards (otherwise known as “Chip” cards) are the new wave of credit cards. You’ve probably already seen them and for a lot of restaurants and bars, this transition will be easy and smooth.
The problem with Aloha® as a point of sale system is the so-called “solutions” offered by most credit card processors or support companies usually range from “…we don’t have an EMV solution yet…” all the way through to “…our solution costs $500 per terminal, and $x a month per terminal…“
Why Do You Need EMV Compliance?
– EMV Compliance is all about protecting (both the merchant and the customer) against fraudulent transactions
– Magnetic-stripe readers are easily “skimmed” by hand-held credit/debit readers.
– EMV chips are extremely difficult (but not entirely impossible) to compromise.
Now Let’s Bust Some EMV Myths…
– There has been a lot of confusion about EMV compliance for business.
– EMV for Aloha (or any point of sale system) is NOT required: The choice is in the hands of the merchant…but if you’re looking for a way to minimize chargebacks, you needs to get on board ASAP!.
– EMV is NOT protection against all chargebacks: liability shift is for counterfeit or lost/stolen card data only
– EMV is NOT a way to secure processing: EMV does NOT protect or encrypt card numbers, only determines legitimacy of the card presented for payment.
– EMV is NOT the same as PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard): EMV is designed to minimize fraud; PCI is an established standard to secure sensitive data.
