Stored Value Card (SVC)

A plastic card containing a microprocessor chip. The chip stores more information than a magnetic strip card and can perform simple computing operations. The SVC is inserted into a terminal with a read/write mechanism that allows information to pass between the card and terminal. A SVC does not require the merchant terminal to be hard wired to a computer network.
