Sage, North America, is hosting a FREE (1-hour) webinar on Thursday, December 10 at 1:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, designed to inform merchants about EMV, the standard for secure credit and debit card payments. EMV, short for Europay, MasterCard and Visa is already used around the world and is presently being deployed in the United States.
This past October was the supposed migration to EMV, and with that, the shift of fraudulent transactions liability to merchant businesses, rather than the credit-card merchant service, if EMV technology is not in use by the merchant..
Countless numbers of merchants are still not EMV compliant, many because they do not understand the new provisions, and the implications those provisions potentially have on their businesses. During this webinar your clients (merchant service users) can get up to speed on what they need to know, what they need to do, and how they can limit their exposure to the new liability provisions when accepting payments.
The webinar will provide answers to questions like:
What is EMV?
What does EMV mean for payment and fraud liability to a small business?
How should a small business account for EMV in their business?
Why and How to Register:
Every accountant, business consultant or bookkeeper with clients using a merchant service should be fully aware of the EMV requirements and provisions. This webinar will provide critical information every business using merchant services should be aware of, even if (you or) they don’t use Sage products, or you (or they) use a merchant service other than Sage payment solutions.
