ABSTRACT
The article discusses the usage of debit cards in the hospitality industry, considering the two kinds of debit transactions. It states that like automated teller machine (ATM) transactions, on-line debit cards require authentication after swiping, which is provided through a personal identification number (PIN) code instead of a signature. It adds that off-line debit cards are almost the same with standard credit cards that is why they are frequently handled in the same way.
