If you’ve received a new card from your bank in the last six months, it’s likely an EMV card with a chip. Banks are issuing EMV cards, and retailers are installing EMV-capable terminals to accept those EMV cards. Both are working toward the October 2015 deadline whereby the liability shift occurs.

Fast Receipt Printer Demo By CognitiveTPG At NRF 2015
One of the products at the 2015 NRF show that caught my eye – though my eyes couldn’t quite catch up to it – was the A799II thermal receipt printer by CognitiveTPG.
