How to use your EMV card at point of purchase

How does it work?
A chip card is more difficult to replicate or counterfeit than cards with a magnetic stripe and provides better protection against card theft. Chip cards also ensure your purchase is instantly verified by your PIN or signature at the time of transaction. Best of all, you can use your card anywhere Visa is accepted. If a merchant is not EMV-capable, your transaction will be processed using the magnetic stripe on the back.
