Re: List of Credit cards and their chip and pin status

Noticed you've got Viscea listed as chip & pin and signature both. I've used my Viscea card in the UK and have never
been asked for a signature - just chip & pin.
Ok, good point, I guess I have to be more exact in order to make the comparison clear and fair. The key question is therefore this: if the card has a chip and pin and does not require a signature anymore in both Coop and Migros shops in Switzerland, it satisfies the test in my view.
I am referring to large stores in this case, with up to date terminals. (Because the smaller stores may have older terminals which renders the test inapplicable).

So if Viseca cards work in these larger stores, with the pin and without signatures required, that would be great and I would update the table accordingly. Also, kzs his post suggests that the PostFinance Mastercard is still a question mark.
