EMV has been adopted by nearly every country in the world – with the U.S as the singular exception. That started to change in 2011, when Visa announced an EMV migration plan that included incentives for adoption and potential penalties for those who do not. MasterCard likewise announced their own EMV adoption plan in early 2012, with Discover and American Express following shortly thereafter. With these EMV plans, the card networks are requiring US processors, sub-processors, and certain larger merchants to be able to support merchant acceptance of EMV transactions no later than April 1, 2013. Signature Card Services is fully prepared to make the transition and make it as simple as possible for you, by providing all of the information and support you need.
EMV adoption does not have to be costly or difficult. Signature Card Services is making the migration as seamless and hassle-free as possible, by offering an EMV-capable terminal
as well as full support and education to you. We are empowering you to embrace this change, so you can be ready to reap the benefits that EMV will bring: greater security, lower PCI compliance costs, and maximum flexibility.
