Retailers line up to test Chip & PIN technology

The retail line-up for the Northampton trial of Chip & PIN credit card technology will be revealed within the next two weeks.

Store groups are currently testing their systems, but no date has yet been given for when the scheme will go live. The co-ordinators will only say that it will be some time this spring.

Sandra Quinn of the Chip & PIN programme said: 'The testing is going well, but it is a complex process.'
