Fuel Merchants Lagging Behind on EMV Compliance

According to surveys, fuel merchants are lagging behind in EMV Compliance at the pumps. After April 17, 2021, the liability for credit card fraud was shifted to fuel merchants instead of the card issuer if EMV technology was not in use. However, many gas stations have still not made the necessary upgrades. The danger now is that criminals will begin to take note of the locations without EMV technology as these are the locations where it is easier to fit skimmers and other fraudulent devices. This could in turn, put customers off using a particular gas station for fear of fraud.

It's not too late to arrange your upgrades. Call PumpTex today.
