Hatboro, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) August 14, 2015
Constellation Payments, a leading gateway and merchant services provider for software companies, franchisors, direct sales organizations, and large merchants, announced today that it will host a free, live webinar on the migration to new EMV chip technology and its impact on businesses that accept credit and/or debit cards. The webinar, EMV Chip Cards & The October 1st Merchant Liability Shift: What You Need to Know to Prepare, will be held on Wednesday, August 26, 2015 at 1:00 pm (ET).
“The liability shift to EMV represents a new way of processing payments,” said Steven Pinado, CEO of Constellation Payments. “We want participants to walk away with a definitive action plan – knowing exactly how to prepare for the upcoming EMV changes, how to protect their business, and how Constellation Payments will help them.”
Named after its original developers — Europay, MasterCard and VISA — EMV is a global standard for the cards equipped with chips and the technology used to authenticate transactions and reduce fraud.
This year the U.S. is migrating to EMV as it is proven to significantly reduce card fraud resulting from counterfeit, lost and stolen cards. For merchants, the switch to EMV means using new EMV-compatible payment terminals and complying with new liability rules.
During the informative, educational webinar, Constellation Payments Business Development Executive, Rick Ellis, will explain:
- How new chip cards work and how the switch will affect checkout
- What EMV and the liability shift mean and its impact on businesses
- Where to look for EMV-compatible terminals and how to implement new terminals in a business
The webinar will also dispel common misconceptions about EMV, plus cover the business-building opportunities most new payment terminals provide.
Any merchant that accepts credit and/or debit cards at their business is encouraged to attend. Click here to learn more and to register for the webinar.
