The chip on your new Capital Access Visa® Platinum debit card makes your card nearly impossible to counterfeit, so you can make your purchases with confidence. As before, your new card comes with $0 liability. This means you’re not responsible for any fraudulent charges.
Your card still has a magnetic strip, so you can continue to swipe your card to make payments the same way you always have. For merchants accepting chip transactions, follow these easy steps:
The U.S. is shifting to chip cards used at chip-enabled readers because chip technology has proven successful in reducing fraud in over 130 countries around the world. Many countries worldwide have adopted chip technology, and it will become the security standard for card payments in the U.S.
It is a card that has a chip on the front as well as the traditional magnetic strip on the back. The chip provides added security when used with a chip-enabled terminal or ATM. The chip protects in-store payments because it generates a unique, one-time code needed for each transaction to be approved.
A chip transaction adds another layer of security to cards by requiring the chip to produce a single-use code to validate the transaction – further protecting your card from unauthorized use. This process makes your chip card information more difficult to steal and therefore makes your chip card more difficult to counterfeit.
Chip card technology provides an additional layer of security to help reduce certain types of fraud resulting from data breaches; however, it will not prevent a data breach.
The chip stores information needed to complete your purchase, such as card number and expiration date.
No. Chip card technology is not a locator system. The chip on your card is limited to supporting authentication of card data when you make a purchase.
These are all just different terms for the same technology. The technology used in these credit cards is commonly known as EMV-enabled, which stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa, which uphold the chip technology. These cards are a global standard for processing credit and debit card payments.
Effective October 1, 2015, Visa’s global point-of-sale counterfeit liability shift will be effective in the U.S. With this liability shift, the party that is the cause of a chip transaction not occurring (i.e., either the issuer or the merchant’s acquirer) will be held financially liable for any resulting card present counterfeit fraud losses.
Yes, like all Visa cards your new chip card will be protected under the Visa Zero Liability policy. You must notify Raymond James promptly of any unauthorized use.
You can use your chip card anywhere Visa cards are accepted. Many merchants across the U.S. are beginning to accept chip card transactions and this will continue to grow within the coming years. Your chip card will still work at terminals where only magnetic strip transactions are accepted.
Instead of swiping the card at the merchant card reader, you’ll insert it into the slot in the front of the chip card reader. Leave the card in the chip card reader until your purchase is complete. If a signature is required, just sign, and always remember to take your card when you’re done.
Your card will also have a magnetic strip on the back, so you can still swipe your card at a traditional card reader, just as you would today.
Your Internet and telephone transactions will work just as they do today.
Just like anytime you get a new card, notify the merchants that charge your card, give them your card number, expiration date and the 3-digit security code.
In most cases, you’ll either sign or enter your PIN to complete your purchase – just like you do today. You may not be required to do either for certain types of transactions involving relatively small purchase amounts.
Some merchants may have chip terminals, but they may not yet be activated to accept chip cards. If you are unable to insert your chip card into a chip terminal, you can always swipe your card to complete the transaction. Most often, merchants that haven’t activated their terminals will block the chip slot.
