How can I tell if a transaction was EMV or regular credit/debit in my Payments Portal reports?

The Entry Mode field in the Transaction Details indicates whether a transaction was EMV or regular credit/debit. The Payments Portal displays one of the following Entry Modes depending on the card the customer presents, and how they use it:

  • EMV Contact: EMV transaction – the customer dipped their card and provides their signature
  • Proximity: EMV transaction – the customer used a contactless EMV card
  • Swiped: Regular credit/debit transaction – the customer swiped their card
  • Manual: Regular credit/debit transaction – the customer typed their card information using the keypad

The Entry Mode field is located in the Card Information section.
