Boston, September 15, 2016 – The path to full adoption of EMV as the standard for card-based physical-world payments in the U.S. has been fraught with challenges, and even 12 months prior to the October 2015 liability shift, many merchants had still not heard of EMV. The adoption of EMV has since accelerated, and the outlook appears to be anecdotally encouraging. But quantitative data is needed to fully understand the dynamics of the shift not only for EMV but also for NFC, the enabler for mobile wallet usage at the point of sale.
This report seeks to quantify the state of merchant implementation of EMV after the liability shift, analyzes implementation by business size and category, and explores merchant capability and interest in mobile wallet acceptance.
