Credit cards are now being issued with a small chip (called the EMV chip), and business owners across the country have had to update their point-of-sale systems to accommodate chip cards. The first point-of-sale requirements took effect in 2015, but another deadline is on the horizon. Fuel retailers have until Oct. 1, 2020, to install EMV chip-card readers at automated fuel dispensers. Podcast guest Dan Witkemper, Director, North America Payment at Gilbarco Veeder-Root, tells us what truckstops and travel centers should know about EMV chip technology to ensure they're ready by the 2020 deadline.
