    Thanks for this advice for getting an EMV chip card reader. It’s good to know that you should upgrade the terminal often. It sounds important to stay up to date on any changes with EMV especially if it can let you know if you need to update the terminal.

      I like where you say that you technically don’t need to upgrade to EMV, but practically it’s a good idea. I am interested in wireless EMV, and what it can do for my wife’s business. She uses a system on her phone, so hopefully we can find something that works with that.

        Hello
        I need help I have questions, we have a pos provider as pc America they refer us to chip machine VX805 or PAXS300 but it’s not compatible with our merchant services provider which is first data. Would it still be hook up set up or it would not work..? our merchant referred us to another chip card machine but our pos provider not compatible with it. Not sure what I should do. Help…!!!

          There are Emv/NFC terminals and EMVNFC pin pads. Do I need a terminal and a pin pad that can accept EMV and NFC?

            Our credit card company/terminal is costing us a small fortune in fees. A lot of our customers do not know their PINs….causing us to back out and manually enter the credit card number. Is there a terminal out there that won’t force us to do this?
