Contactless EMV: fast and secure payments
Catch the contactless wave
The new chip cards introduced to the U.S. market in 2015 have been extremely effective at preventing card cloning and making in-store fraud more difficult.
However, they have also created a new problem for shoppers; the chip transaction feels considerably slower than a magnetic-stripe swipe, frustrating consumers and merchants alike.
Contactless EMV cards, which harness all the security of EMV, delight customers with a much faster ‘tap-and-go’ experience. Contactless cards, also termed Dual Interface, have a specialized chip and an antenna built-in, which allow you to pay by waving the card in front of the reader.
Innovative issuers have begun to ride the wave in a race to be the first to capitalize on the customer appeal and the increased revenues generated by tap-and-go transactions.
