Credit Card Glossary: Terms and Definitions
Card-present (CP) transactions
Credit or debit card transactions conducted face-to-face, in which the card is physically swiped. Card-present transactions are considered more secure than card-not-present transactions, since a merchant can view the buyer, the card and the signature on it.
