EMV Chip Payment Technology

Everything You Need To Know About EMV Chip Payment Technology

Clearview has joined financial institutions all over the world in the switch to EMV Chip credit and debit cards. EMV (Europay, Mastercard® and Visa®) cards contain computer chips that authorize or validate payment card transactions. These cards provide increased security on personal information during transactions to prevent fraud.

The United States is one of the last countries to migrate to EMV chip technology. It may take some time for all of your favorite merchants to switch to EMV technology, but your spending will not be disrupted. Our new EMV cards will still contain a magnetic stripe, so merchants can adjust to the change. You’ll have the perfect solution for international travel and still be able to make online purchases as well.
