What is a "chip" card?
Over the past year, credit card companies have started issuing credit and debit cards with a small, gold colored chip visible on the face of the card. This only applies to credit and debit cards, not University ID cards or proprietary gift cards. When inserted into a chip enabled reader, the card generates and sends a unique transaction ID code to the processor. This code makes it virtually impossible to create a fraudulent transaction.
