Count on enhanced security and global
acceptance with chip technology

Chip technology is a more secure way to pay — at more places around the world. Here's what you can look forward to:

Enhanced fraud protection - Chip technology is the global standard in fraud protection.

Smart security - Whenever you check out at a chip-enabled terminal, a unique one-time code is created that is required for your transaction to be approved. This code is nearly impossible for counterfeit cards to duplicate.

Global acceptance - With more merchants around the world installing chip-enabled terminals every day, you have a more secure way to pay... wherever you go. 


Follow these easy steps to pay at a chip-enabled terminal: 


How to pay, Step 1Insert the chip end of your U.S. Bank card into the chip-enabled terminal with the chip facing up.

How to pay, Step 2
your card in the terminal throughout the transaction and follow the prompts on screen. You may need to sign or enter your PIN. Some transactions require neither.

How to pay, Step 3
your card from the terminal when prompted and take your receipt.

Please note: If you remove your card too soon, your purchase will be canceled.

If your favorite store or restaurant doesn't have a chip-enabled terminal yet, your card has a magnetic stripe. 
So, you can use it the same way you do today even online or over the phone.
