Your new chip card is different from our old magnetic stripe card. It's way more secure. But you may not have known that using it is a little different. Not harder, just different. Here's what you do:
First, swipe your card.
If the terminal is not chip card enabled, the transaction will be processed the same as today's environment.
If the terminal is chip card enabled, the terminal will read the magnetic stripe and recognize it as a chip card. The message on the terminal screen will read, "Please insert the chip card into the terminal."
If prompted by the terminal, insert your card. The terminal will authenticate your chip card and keep it safely inside the terminal until you've finished your transaction.
Authenticating every user prevents someone else from using it.
Second, remember your PIN.
Terminals may use different formats to authenticate the card user. There are two methods that can be used to authenticate the cardholder. Those two methods are PIN and signature. A PIN is one method to verify the cardholder is the person doing the transaction. A signature is another method.
Third, remove your card.
After you receive your transaction receipt and before you leave, remember to remove your card. Some terminals will beep to remind you, but others won't.
Surcharge-Free Currency Conversions
Many who travel abroad will also enjoy the added benefit of surcharge-free currency conversions when they use their NGFCU MasterCard.
