Retailers use the same machines for credit AND debit cards, so they all need PINS. Unless you have a chip and signature card of course. I am not sure whether chip and signature cards are available on both credit and debit cards.Margarita said:Really, just when while I was working last November l, I found that all credit cards did not need pins, while debit cards did.
As I thought that…………… I thought it would have been a good idea for sue father to use, then having to get chip pin, informing bank that he does not want pin if he got a debit card .
so do you mean that you can use your non-uk credit card in a UK store without a pin?jenniferpa said:I'm wondering if Maggie has come across cards like mine: non-uk issued credit cards. These don't have chips or necessarily pins. However, I couldn't use my non-uk debit card at a point of sale, because it does need a pin, but the UK machines don't have the ability to deal with a non-chip card that needs a pin. I can use that in an ATM but that's it. I suspect that every non-uk debit card is the same, hence anyone working in a store would never come across a non-uk debit card, only a non-uk credit card. Does that make sense?
