Do you know what will happen if your business doesn’t comply with the card chip law?
If you use an old magnetic card swiper, clients can dispute/challenge the charge, and you as an EMV non-compliant merchant would have no legal recourse. EMV compliance protects businesses from liability. As long as you are EMV compliant, you won’t be liable for fraud swiped transactions whether they come from chip transactions or swipe.
