Metal-CreditCard.com is making metal credit cards a reality for consumers thanks to the launch of its new EMV Chip Swap technology. The “No Heat” EMV Chip Swap™ procedure allows plastic debit and credit cardholders to switch to a metal card without breaking the bank on annual fees.
Swap Plastic Debit or Credit Cards for Metal
Have you ever wished your plastic credit card was made of a more luxurious metal material? Metal credit cards are sought after for their impressive weight and durability. They are a common feature of premium cards, like the Chase Sapphire Reserve, Capital One Venture, and the Platinum Card from American Express.
Metal-CreditCard.com Rolls-Out EMV Chip Swap Procedure
Metal-CreditCard.com (MCC), a Tampa-based company, helps cardholders worldwide shift their current credit card from plastic to metal. What’s more, there are no applications, credit checks, or annual fees involved. The company is now moving its beta EMV Chip Swap™ procedure into production, with the release of a new “No Heat” EMV Chip Swap™ procedure, version 3.0.
The new EMV Chip Swap technology allows MCC to transplant the active EMV chip from a plastic debit or credit card into a new metal card. Previous methods involved heat, often leading to failure of the chip – and destruction of the card.
The new process incorporates proprietary patent-pending tools developed by MCC. This makes the process more stable, dramatically increasing EMV chip transplant success. This stability makes upgrading a plastic card to a metal version much safer.
“Practically Guarantees Chip Transplant Success Every Time”
The end of beta testing, and launch of the new “No Heat” EMV Chip Swap™ procedure, was hailed by MCC founder Vincent Torres in a press release announcing the news:
“While other copycat services continue to use obsolete methods, our updated EMV transplant procedure practically guarantees chip transplant success every time,” he said. “Any time any degree of heat is applied directly to an EMV chip, a catastrophic failure is practically guaranteed. It was too risky, and we knew we had to get away from that method quickly.”
Metal-CreditCard.com was the world’s first online service upgrading plastic debit and credit cards to metal construction. It was first established in Los Angeles, California, in 2013.
