EMV® is a global standard for credit and debit payment cards based on chip card technology, taking its name from the card schemes Europay, MasterCard, and Visa — the original card schemes that developed it. EMV cards come with an embedded microprocessor that provides heightened transaction security, card authentication and additional capabilities not possible with traditional magnetic stripe cards.
