The webinar will be held on
"Merchants that have not started examining chip card technology and acceptance should start now. Recognizing that the merchant community has been looking for in-depth resources on the topic, we have assembled industry expert presenters and used the expertise from the NRF and our membership to build a one-hour overview of the major topics and considerations for enabling chip acceptance. We plan to use the feedback and questions from this session to develop additional webinars with focused topics for merchants," said
Webinar presenters are:
The webinar is intended to educate merchants on the global use of chip cards, the status of the U.S. migration, considerations for making the decision to accept chip payments, and tools to begin project planning for chip card acceptance implementation. Webinar speakers will cover key merchant topics regarding chip card acceptance, including: impacts of payment brands' fraud liability shifts; customer experience; hardware and software considerations; testing and enablement timelines; the relationship with PCI DSS, tokenization and encryption; the role of acquirers, processors and/or ISOs in chip acceptance plans; and real-life implementation best practices and lessons learned. It will also include a Q&A at the conclusion of the presentation.
"As merchants ponder options for upgrading their payment systems and combating fraud, many are considering deployment of EMV," said
An extensive library of EMV resources can be found at www.emv-connection.com, which includes additional tutorials and educational information specifically for merchants, issuers, acquirers/processors and consumers.

About U.S. EMV Migration
Commonly used globally in place of magnetic stripe, EMV chip technology helps to reduce card fraud in a face-to-face card-present environment; provides global interoperability; and enables safer transactions across contact and contactless channels. EMV implementation was initiated in the U.S. market in in 2011 and 2012 when American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa announced their roadmaps for supporting an EMV-based payments infrastructure. Acquirer processor readiness mandates to support EMV were established for 2013, with liability shifts for managing fraud risk in a face-to-face environment set for 2015.
