Tempting, since I have considered at its regular price of $39.99.

However, I am trying to make profits and this will cut into my profits...

Don't know the nature of your business, but being on the hook for credit card fraud by not having a chip reader will also cut into your profits.

If you are kind enough to explain to me how the chip reader protects from fraud that a non chip card doesn't please.

I am ignorant to that and I will rep you for your help.

Thanks in advance.

PS. I have a small mobile business offering misc services (legal paper work, marriage etc).

Square provides a concise explanation here.

https://squareup.com/emv-liability-shift

Essentially, as of October 2015 if you swipe a card with a chip and the transaction is fraudulent then you will be liable for it.

I believe if the Merchant uses a traditional swipe method instead of the Chip and there is a fraudulent CC involved, the responsibility lies with the merchant but not the bank. But if you have used a chip card reader, then the bank is responsible.

I'm no expert but if someone tampers with or copies the stripe on the back of a credit card (which is easy to do) the business owner is responsible for the fraud and not the credit card company. The chip reader is supposed to cut back on the ease of credit card tampering, and if there are fraudulent charges, the credit card company takes care of them.

At least that's what I understand. I would suggest you read up on it some more though.

The new credit card rule since October 2015 since US is finally hitting cards with chips. Pretty much if a customer of yours have a ev chip and you aren't using a chip reader, you are liable for almost all disputes or frauds unless you use a chip reader.

This was taken from Square

"The big milestone here was the liability shift (which happened on October 1, 2015). Under the liability shift, businesses could be on the hook for certain types of fraudulent transactions if they aren't set up to accept chip cards.

All in, as EMV migration continues, we expect EMV technology to continue to dominate the market. EMV migration will continue on the debit card front too, as more banks issue debit cards with chips. And with over 70% of all transactions now involving a chip credit card, business owners need to make sure they have a POS system or credit card reader that's EMV compliant. One easy way to do that is to buy an nfc reader that accepts mobile payments like apple pay and android pay, since most of those credit card readers come emv compliant.

The EMV takeover is in full swing, and now more than ever business owners need to make sure they're covered. If not, they be held responsible for credit card fraud, and no one wants that."

#1 - Are you in a high chargeback industry?
#2 - Do you deal with sales greater than 35.99?
#3 - Are the most of your card charges in person vs over the phone?

If you answered YES to #2 and one of the other ones... it makes sense to get a chip reader now.

Other than that... not really. wait for a sale or when its time to replace.

The liability shift does change 'card not present' fraud. That's still the banks problem.

The ONLY time you (the merchant) get dinged with the fraud is if you physically swipe the card and the card was a chipped card. Thats it.

As a business owner, I never once had a chargeback that was "the bank's responsibility"; they always fell on the merchant, 100%. So while rules changed last October, I don't that reality did.

Can't you just invoice the person and have them pay it on their phone so you don't have to have the chip reader?

Fair warning if you're even thinking about using Square. Google the way they shut down accounts and hold the funds for 180 days. They make PayPal look chummy... I'd highly recommend not using Square.
