Member Benefit: Understanding the New EMV Regulations

  • Instructors:
    Kristen Hartman

    PPA Members:


    PPA is excited to cohost a webinar with Bank of America Merchant services, our preferred credit card processing partner, to keep you informed about changes coming in the credit card processing industry. Whether you currently accept credit cards at your studio or not, you may have heard of a little change coming in the credit card processing industry known as the EMV chip. While this will make processing credit cards more secure from fraud for consumers, it also means you, as a small business owner, may need to make some changes. This webinar will address not only the EMV chip and the changes involved, but also give you some background information on Interchange rates, what they are, and how they affect the processing costs passed on to you. If you currently accept credit cards, are looking to change merchant providers, or want to consider this as an option for your studio in the future, make sure you don’t miss out on this educational opportunity!

    We value your feedback and want to know how we can improve. Please share your thoughts about the class here.
