Wondering what credit card machine to use now with the new EMV chip and pin technology?

October 5th, 2015 by EKG Networking

Recently, we were asked what would be a good credit card machine to use with the new EMV chip and pin technology.  This if for the new credit cards that have the chip in them to better secure the card against theft and fraud.  The card is inserted sideways into the unit and stays there until the transaction completes.  The technology has been available in Europe for a while but recent laws are requiring it here in the United States.

What is wonderful is we have an extensive network of experts we can ask questions of.

Thank you to Keith Reardon of Commonwealth Consulting Group, LLC for providing us this information.

He recommends the Verifone vx520 terminal.

“Verifone has been a leader in the payments hardware space for years. Their new vx line of terminals are great for EMV (chip-based cards). Specifically, the vx520 because of its ease of use and affordability.”
