Merchants Bank of Alabama offers instant issue instant issue EMV Chip Business Debit Cards for your convenience. Stop by your local branch and get a debit card that your business can use right away. You’ll have immediate access to the money in your business banking account and can use your instant issue debit card at ATMs and participating retailers and service providers.
The chip technology provides stronger protection by making it difficult for your business card to be copied or counterfeited at chip-enabled terminals as a unique code is created for each transaction. In addition to using your card at chip-enabled terminals, your card has a magnetic stripe allowing you to use it, at retailers who do not yet have chip-enabled terminals. The EMV Chip Debit Card technology provides an enhanced level of security and greater worldwide acceptance as it is already standard practice in more than 130 countries worldwide and more U.S. merchants are accepting chip cards every day.
As more merchants become chip-enabled, you will notice a slightly different experience when you use your card. Insert and leave the chip end of your card into the terminal with the chip facing up. Keep your card in the terminal and follow the prompts on screen. And finally, remove your card when prompted and take your receipt. You may have to sign for your purchase. For online or phone purchases, simply provide your card number and complete your transaction as you do today.
For lost or stolen debit cards, call 1-800-500-1044.
