Chip and PIN machine FAQs
What is Chip & PIN?
Chip and PIN is a way of making payment using a credit or debit card which was first introduced in the UK in 2004. Before Chip and PIN technology, customers would need to swipe their card through a magnetic stripe reader and then sign to confirm payment. With the introduction of Chip and PIN, this gave businesses a faster and safer way to process transactions, protecting both customers and the card provider.
How does it work?
With Chip and PIN, when the customer is ready to make payment, they simply insert their credit and debit card into the Chip and PIN machine. The machine will then request for the transaction to be verified by the customer entering their 4-digit PIN number.
What types of Chip and PIN terminals are there?
