Different Kinds of Credit Card Readers

Credit card readers come in a few varieties and it is important to evaluate all of your options so that you know which one is the best fit for your business. The most standard version of a credit card reader is the kind that reads the magnetic stripe on credit cards. Some credit cards are also now coming with a chip in them, this chip provides an extra layer of security and protection. Chip cards are also known as smart cards or EMV. EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa, which are the three companies that created the enhanced security standards that come with the chip. In a chip card the data is stored on the chip as opposed to the magnetic stripe of the card. However, a majority of chip cards also have a magnetic stripe. The kind of credit card readers that are able to read the chip are known as EMV-capable or EMV-ready. With chip cards the card must be physically dipped into the reader, which is why the cards are frequently called chip-and-dip cards or chip and signature cards. Another kind of credit card reader or capability that a credit card reader can have is accepting near field communication (NFC) payments. Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Google Wallet are all ways to make a NFC payment. NFC is also known as contactless payment. Credit card readers that are capable of accepting payments via NFC only need to have the customer's electronic device held within a few centimeters of the credit card reader and information is transmitted between the two devices. The customer's electronic device needs to be enabled to pay through NFC in order for the credit card reader to be able to read the credit card's information.
