Top Question:
How do I use a chip-enabled debit card?
Best Answer:

It’s easy to access the latest in secure-technology. Simply look for terminals with the reader slot located at the bottom of the machine or ask the merchant if they accept chip-enabled cards. If the terminal is not chip ready, simply use the magnetic strip as you would with your old card.

Following these easy steps:

  • Slide your card into the terminal with the chip-end first. Do not remove it.
  • Follow the prompts on the display. This may take a few seconds.
  • Remove the card when instructed. Be sure not to leave it in the terminal.
