For many, October 2015 was supposed to signal the end of the mag-stripe credit / debit card era and beginning of a new age of secure chip-based payments in the United States. However, almost 6 months after “E-day” the reviews are mixed. Some merchants have embraced EMV wholeheartedly while others are in no rush to join the party. On the bank side, many credit issuers are ready however debit is lagging behind as the industry adjusts to the new world of global and common AIDs. And then there are consumers. Feedback here is mixed with some studies stating that consumers are waiting for / demanding the technology while others suggesting that they hate it due to inconvenience caused by “long delays” at the POS, etc.
Come join us and hear a panel of experts discuss what’s fact vs. what’s fiction with EMV. During this discussion, Josh Brant (CEO of Allegiance Merchant Services), Crystal Allen (EMV Project Manager at Extended Stay America), Suzanne Galvin (SVP, Product Management for Elan/ATM & Debit Services), and Chuck Winter (Principal at North Highland) will be sharing their perspectives on everything that has happened so far with EMV and what we can all expect in the future.
