EMV is a micro-chip payment standard created by Europay®, MasterCard®, and Visa® over 10 years ago and has been implemented globally. EMV payment cards improve security over magnetic stripe technology through an embedded computer chip.

In October of 2015, liability for counterfeit fraud transactions shifts from the financial institution to a merchant if the merchant does not accept EMV transactions.

Ignite Payments Fairmed (First Data) is ready for EMV now. We have EMV-capable terminals and will help you through the process to become fully capable of processing EMV transactions.
