EMV Chip Technology

The Ultimate in Fraud Protection

All Summit cards are equipped with EMV Chips. That means you’ll be able to use your card with confidence anywhere Visa is accepted.

What is EMV?

EMV stands for EuroPay, MasterCard®, Visa® and it represents chip technology that increases security.

How do I use my EMV Chip card?

If the merchant is chip-card ready, you will be prompted to insert your card into the terminal where it will communicate with the microchip to determine if the card is authentic. Follow the prompts on the terminal and remove the chip card when prompted to do so. If the merchant isn’t chip-card ready, the transaction will process using the magnetic strip on your card.
