BDO urges clients to switch to EMV cards

BDO Unibank is encouraging its retail clients who have yet to avail themselves of the EMV-chip ATM debit card to obtain it immediately from their branch of account to earn the benefit of its fully EMV-certified ATM network.

BDO started to make the EMV-chip ATM debit cards available free of charge to its clients since the third quarter of 2016.

However, to date, there is still a low figure of card pickups from the branches, which means a large number of clients are still using the magnetic stripe-only ATM debit cards.

For corporate or payroll clients, BDO will make the EMV-chip cards available at their respective HR offices by Dec. 31. (PR)
