Chip Cards

  1. How does chip technology protect my information?

    Every time you use your card at a chip-enabled terminal, the embedded chip generates a unique transaction code. This prevents stolen data from being fraudulently used.

  2. Where can I use my chip-enabled card?

    You can use your card at millions of places that accept Visa® at home and around the world.

  3. Can I still swipe my card to pay?

    Yes. If a merchant is not yet chip-enabled, you can continue to swipe your card and sign for your purchase.

  4. Will I have to pay any fees to use my chip-enabled card?

    No. There are no additional fees to use your chip-enabled card.
