Chip Cards

We are committed to your security

Bellco Visa® credit cards now come with chip technology built right in. When you use your card at a chip-activated terminal, the embedded chip protects your information by creating a unique code for each transaction that can't be replicated by counterfeit cards, providing you with an extra layer of fraud protection.

It’s easy to pay at a chip-activated terminal:

  • Insert the chip end of the card into the terminal with the chip facing up.
  • The card must remain in the terminal during the entire transaction.
  • Either sign the receipt or enter your PIN to complete the transaction.
  • When the purchase is complete, remember to take your card with you.

If you come across a merchant who does not have a chip-activated terminal, you can still swipe your card as you do today.

Enjoy global acceptance

For those traveling abroad, chip cards are the global standard for both credit and debit cards. You can also use your chip card online and over the phone the same way you do today.
