Chip Cards Coming to BNB - A "How To" Post

By Randy Alderman

In the coming months, Bradford National Bank will begin the reissuance of credit cards for both Mastercard and Visa.  The new credit cards will be EMV compliant, which means they will have a chip embedded in the card (EMV stands for Europay, Mastercard, Visa).
New EMV compliant chip cards will be issued to BNB credit card holders when their existing card is set to expire.

Info graphic on how to use your E M V Chip debit card.  One, insert your chip card into a chip-friendly reader.  Two, approve the amount.  Three, Follow prompt to enter your Pin or to sign.  Four, remove your chip card when prompted.

With the addition of the chip, it may change the way you make purchases at local businesses. 

· If the merchant machine can handle the chip card, your card must remain in the machine for the duration of your transaction (see above instructions).

· If the merchant machine does not handle the chip card, you may continue to make transactions with the traditional swipe.

Chip technology is used world-wide and is slowly being adopted in the United States.  Chips contain encrypted information that makes it extremely difficult for the card to be copied or counterfeited.  At merchants that use chip terminals, the card and terminal work together to add an additional layer of security to the transaction.

   EMV chip technology will also soon be available with the Bradford National Bank debit card.
