Media Communications Tips

Consumers get a lot of information from the media. Communicating accurate and consistent messages with the media is one of the easiest ways we as an industry can help educate the market on chip cards.

When talking to media this week, use these facts about using chip cards at the ATM in your speaking points:

Can consumers who don't have chip cards still use chip-enabled ATMs?
Yes, chip-enabled ATMs will continue to accept magnetic stripe cards.

What if the ATM doesn't accept chip cards?
Chip cards will still have a magnetic stripe on the back, so even if an ATM is not yet chip-enabled, consumers can use their cards as they do today.

When will consumers be able to use their chip card at all ATM locations?
Every day, more and more ATMs are becoming chip-enabled to increase security for in-person card transactions, so consumers will start to see these ATMs at many of the financial institutions they visit today. Consumers will continue to be able to use both chip-enabled and non-chip-enabled ATMs with the same card.

Where can consumers go to learn about chip cards at the ATM?
