EMV Chip Card

The newly released EMV chip cards store data in a highly secure chip in addition to the typical magnetic stripe.

We currently support contact transactions in which the card must be inserted into our EMV reader and remain inserted for the duration of the transaction. EMV transactions are accompanied by messaging, such as “Please dip card”, “Please remove card”.

If multiple supported Applications Identifiers (AIDs) are found on the card, the user will have to select which application to use for processing.

The Cardholder Verification Methods (CVM) that we support with chip cards are signature or no CVM. The card issuer will determine whether or not a signature is required for a transaction in accordance with their own risk management policies. If you are implementing the EMV functionality of our SDK, you must implement signature handling.
