Introducing Sterling's EMV Solutions and Protection Program
Beginning October 1, 2015, merchants processing face to face transactions that do not support EMV chip cards are liable for chargebacks on certain types of fraudulent payments involving counterfeit, lost or stolen cards.
If an EMV enabled version of your payment software is not currently available, Sterling has a solution to protect you. Our free EMV LIABILITY SHIFT PROTECTION will cover your eligible chargebacks so you can rest easy and focus on running your business.
Eligible merchants may continue to use their current equipment until further notice to allow them more time and better options to update their transaction processing systems. Sterling is working with POS system developers to enable solutions for face to face EMV chip card transactions in the near future.
