If the card’s magnetic stripe won’t read, you should either key enter the card number and CVV2 or ask for another form of Visa payment. Information is printed (flat) instead of embossed (raised), and the card design can be either vertical or horizontal. Generic Name may appear instead of a cardholder name. The unembossed card’s flat, smooth surface makes it impossible for you to take a manual imprint. Do not key-enter transactions on unembossed cards unless you can also enter a CVV2.
