Chip and signature, what a wasted effort!
Not sure what these things are…
I get this ALL THE TIME working in tourism! XD
Two reasons they went to chip&SIG instead of chip & pin.
1. Liability. The banks don’t want charge backs, and with chip&SIG, it’s easy to say the chip was used, so it must have been authorized by the cardholder, because they didn’t tell us before the transaction that their card was stolen.
2. Customer support & customer push back. People here aren’t used to needing to remember a pin for credit cards, so they forget them, increasing support calls, and complain about them. Also, at checkout, vendors have extra delays while the pin is entered, and pin increases the denied payment rate.
Also, it’s still significantly harder to copy a chip cardthan a magnet stripe, so it’s a bit harder to get all your money stolen without you noticing.
Oh to have the metric system, it’s sooo simple!
I love Piper #Cool
“So much doctor who cosplay” is a really weird sentence. XD
