US Issuers Expand Issuing EMV cards - EMV migration Forum
An EMV card is inserted into a terminal The chip embedded in the card contains an issuer key Using input from the card, the terminal creates and sends a unique piece of data, or “cryptogram” to the issuer’s host during the transaction, validating the card The card is removed when the transaction is completed How Does EMV Work?
How Does EMV Align with Mobile/NFC? An EMV chip can be on a “contactless” card where the chip is “tapped” or “held” near the terminal …..or….. A chip can be inside your smart phone and the phone is “waived” near the terminal… Mobile wallets (eWallets) are rapidly growing in number, which multiplies the opportunity for incremental sales for merchants and new revenue options for ISOs
