Once you have a Chip Card
During the transition to chip, you can swipe your card as you normally would and follow the prompts. If the terminal is chip-enabled, it will prompt you to insert it instead. If you already know your chip card works there, start by inserting your card.
How it Works
EMV chips add a layer of security to your credit and debit transactions decreasing the ability for fraudsters to steal data. These cards are difficult to counterfeit because EMV chips cards use cryptograms that are unique to each transaction and stolen chip data cannot be used to create counterfeit cards.
