THE EARLIER, THE BET TER
Visa announced its U.S. road map to EMV chip in 2011.
Although the initial liability shift date for EMV transactions
at AFDs was Oct. 1, 2017, it was pushed to October 2020
because the fueling industry faces more complex challenges
compared with other merchants.
The complicated AFD infrastructure and specialized
technology for fuel pumps means changing a fuel dispenser
from mag-stripe to chip-reading requires time to plan, certify,
test and implement.
Given the number of U.S. fuel locations that will
implement chip at their fuel dispensers, early implementation will allow greater availability of resources — such as
certi;ed fuel dispenser installers — when they are needed.
Many AFDs are on the path to EMV acceptance, and signi;cant adoption already has occurred. Fuel retailers need to
determine now how they will prepare for the liability shift date.
Imminent upgrades will equip AFDs with better fraud protections and provide enhanced customer checkout experiences.
