Trip Report Chip & Pin Only

Jump to last reply

We encountered the "chip & pin only" situation in a phone store near Brown Thomas in Dublin. The store was not set up to accept a swiped credit card, or even one with the "chip and signature". This is a situation wherein this merchant ends up loosing business while stores like Brown Thomas have no problem in accepting swipe or pin and signature cards. Yes, I could have used cash, but with the economy being what it is, one would thing that every merchant would readily accept the credit cards of visitors looking to spend a little money.

And we know that the credit card situation is not going to change for visitors from the USA any time soon.

So far we haven't encountered any problem using a swipe card at restaurants.
