TINY CHIP, BIG PROTECTION - COMING SOON!

New Security BankCard Corporate Credit Cards and Purchasing Cards will soon come with EMV (Europay™, MasterCard® and Visa®) chip technology built right in. Chip-enabled cards protect your card information in a big way by storing it on a computer chip in addition to the magnetic strip on the back of the card.

Enhanced Fraud Protection with Chip Technology
Every time you use your card at a chip-enabled terminal, the embedded chip protects your information by creating a unique transaction code. Using a chip-enabled card is a simple process:

  1. Insert the chip end of your card into the terminal with the card facing up.
  2. Keep your card in the terminal and follow the prompts on the screen.
  3. Remove your card when prompted and take your receipt.

    Note: You may also be required to enter your PIN or sign for your purchase.

Enjoy Global Acceptance
More places than ever now accept Visa® credit cards. Whether you check out using chip technology or decide to swipe your card, you can pay with confidence worldwide. Plus, you're protected against unauthorized use with Visa®'s Zero Liability policy.
