Visa® and MasterCard® Delay EMV Liability Shift at the Pump to 2020

Visa and MasterCard announced today that they will delay the EMV liability shift for U.S. domestic automated fuel dispenser (AFD) transactions until Oct. 1, 2020. Click the links below for the official communications:

This huge news is due, in part, to the efforts of our very own Kara Gunderson, POS Manager. Her work as the co-chair of the Petroleum Working Committee within the U.S. Payments Forum (formerly known as the EMV Migration Forum) helped identify challenges surrounding EMV AFD solution readiness and ultimately encouraged Visa and MasterCard to extend the deadline.

CITGO Marketers and Retailers are encouraged to continue their outdoor EMV migration path to meet consumer expectations and the new deadline in order to help mitigate fraud at the pump.
