It's no secret that we live in an interconnected world where sending and receiving payments can occur with just a click of a button. For business owners, that's welcome news since this makes it more convenient for you to get paid online, as well as increasing your cash flow since payments happen in real-time.
Recent innovations in software, encryption, and networking technology have changed the way people work, how they communicate, and the expectations they have about how services are delivered. One area of technology-driven change which is about to break out of niche markets and into the mainstream is digital payments.
Usually newer tech means faster tech but that's not the case with EMV. Chip based cards are actually slower than mag based cards because there's a lot more data being transferred back and forth compared to the swipe. Your card, the POS system and your card issuer are having a high tech chat that includes encryption and randomizing your data. More secure, yes. More time consuming? That too.
