New card design by Rabobank marks migration to international POS-scheme

As many of you may know, the Netherlands are now in a final stage of migrating from the Dutch POS-system PIN to the international card scheme Maestro. And as a part of this migration, Rabobank has changed the looks of the card. Given the fact that chip-terminals require a dip of the card, Rabo has moved its cardholder from a landscape to portrait design. In addition it has put the IBAN number on the card, so that customers always have their SEPA-oriented account number nearby.
