P-Card Services has been notified that several vendors in the Tuscaloosa area have recently upgraded their credit card processing equipment to the new Chip & PIN technology. These vendors are now requiring the use of the PIN when paying with your Chip & PIN P-Card. These vendors include, but are not limited to, Wal-Mart and Target. This technology is not currently required by all vendors but will be in the coming months so please be prepared to enter your 4-digit PIN number at checkout. For vendors who do not currently have the Chip & PIN technology, you may still pay for your items using the magnetic stripe on the back of the card.
For additional information or to retrieve a lost PIN, please visit the Chip & PIN Technology section of the P-Card Services website.
