Session Description

This workshop will address the myriad challenges that face all sides of the EMV rollout experience.  The issuers, processors, brands and retailers will be present to discuss their respective issues and challenges in rolling out EMV.  How many retailers still haven’t turned on their ‘chip.’  How many consumers know what’s coming and how are they reacting to the longer processing times EMV contact brings them?  What about the liability issues?  How big a shift has occurred or has it just been a ripple in the timeline?  How many merchants have to wait for certification?  How many processors are overwhelmed by the immense nature of the job before them?  These and other issues will be discussed in a two-part discussion to kick off PayThink 2016.
