What is a fallback transaction?

A fallback transaction happens when the cardholder inserts a chip card into an EMV compliant device but there is a fault with the chip. The device cannot read the chip but allows the cardholder to complete the transaction using the magnetic stripe on the card.

Note: Because the device is EMV ready and there was an attempt to process using the chip, the merchant is not liable for that transaction.
