How do I use my Visa Debit chip card at shops merchant facilities?

You may begin to see a small difference in how transactions are processed when using a card with chip functionality.

Shops that have enabled chip transactions through in-store payment terminals may ask you to insert, or ‘dip’, your chip card in the base of the terminal, instead of swiping the magnetic strip on the back of the card through the terminal. When you transact by inserting your chip card, the card will remain there for the entire transaction.
