The US Credit Companies are still Struggling with Chip Payments

26th July 2016

Dieter Bohn writing for Circuit Breaker on The Verge:

Today I did two things I do nearly every day. 1) I bought something using a credit card, and 2) I complained about something on Twitter. But today, the complaint on Twitter was related to payments, and now my replies are blowing up. They’re blowing up because I said a very obvious thing: in the past couple of months, buying something with a credit card in America has become an absolutely awful experience.

This is really stupid. The UK has had chip and pin payments for years, and the US is supposed to be more advanced?
