no source listed, but according to http://www.wndu.com/content/news/Credit-card-companies-soon-wont-require-signatures-478636673.html it goes into effect in 2

ETA: USA today says 4/14 as well
https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2018/03/30/credit-card-companies-you-can-soon-skip-signing-receipts-most-card-purchases/472380002/

As per amex:

http://about.americanexpress.com/news/pr/2017/amex-eliminates-signature-requirement-worldwide.aspx

"Once this change takes effect in April 2018, merchants will still have the option to collect Card Membersí signatures at the point of sale if they choose to do so, and must continue to collect signatures if they are required to do so by applicable law in a particular jurisdiction."

Rest assured your local jewish small business will continue collecting signatures in an effort to make your shopping experience as frustrating as possible.

it seems it's still optional for the business.  Was the purchase less than $50

That's because they have the pin instead which takes longer.

American cards still need to sign.

Sure, that's what all vendors aim to do.

Have you not shipped at Jewish businesses, especially in Boro Park? No returns, fees for cc, crap cs. But feel free to defend them simply because they share a religion with you.

Sure seems that you're frustrated I'll agree to that.

Oh I agree that it's poor CS and potentially foolish business practice, I don't disagree with that.

-1 not with amex they just didn't require it if it was less then $100 and in the USA if was less than $50 it wasn't required. However now they are expanding it to all purchases both in Canada and the USA

If the chip thing didn't take 8.5 minutes to process we would be moving forward. Now I think the copy paper thing is faster
