More secure card payments
The parking industry is working to increase security for on-site payment by credit/debit card and is introducing payment with EMV-compliant chip-based cards. EMV is an international standard originally developed by Europay, Mastercard and Visa.
This entails a change in the payment process, using the card’s chip instead of the card’s magnetic strip. The chip is more technically advanced than the magnetic strip and is harder to copy, which creates a more secure payment method for all parties. A PIN code is required for payment.
