Widely used throughout the world, EMV is the global standard for secure transactions, which is replacing all swipe-based credit and debit card systems in the United States. The key element of EMV involves using dynamic digital data in every transaction, greatly increasing security and reducing the risk of fraud. Gravity’s integrated EMV solution makes it easy to accept all payments, including chip cards, right from your POS or business management payment software.

Using Gravity’s integrated EMV hardware makes the process quick and seamless. To complete an EMV transaction: If the customer swipes the card, and the terminal recognizes that the card is EMV capable, it will alert the customer. The terminal prompts the customer to insert the chip into the EMV chip slot until the transaction is complete.

The customer will follow the prompts displayed on the terminal. The customer will complete the transaction by signing the receipt or entering their PIN, as prompted.
