Interactive Assessment: Are You Really Ready for EMV?

The October 2015 liability shift is right around the corner. Come the first day of the month, US merchants using non-EMV-compliant technology will be held responsible in the event of a fraudulent transaction made with a chip card. If you’re not ready, now is the time to start preparing for EMV—before the consequences of fraud become even bigger. 

For those with an EMV strategy already in place, it’s time to make sure you’ve covered all of your bases before the big day. There are a number of myths circulating about who is affected by the shift, what will change after the October 1 deadline and what it means to be EMV-ready. That’s why it’s so important to make sure you know what to expect and carefully check the essentials of EMV readiness. 

Believe it or not, you’ll need to do more than just update your terminals to accept EMV payments. If you don’t have a plan in place for employee training and customer education, you might not be as ready as you think. 

To help you prepare for the fast-approaching liability shift, we’ve put together a quick assessment to determine if you’re EMV-ready. If you’re not, we’ll tell you what you still need to do before—and even after—the deadline. Take the survey here:
