Im curious what shows up on the screen when I use my credit card at the grocery store / retail store?

what private info can the cashier see? does it show just my name? or does it also show my address, date of birth, etc?

because I noticed when they check they are looking at something I cant see from the opposite side of the counter, what are they seeing on their screen?

does it show my home address?

They see nothing. Some see your name, that's it.
(This should be in the Shopping threads)

Probably the approval from the CC company. I asked mods to move.

Mod comment: Thread moved.

Having built P.O.S. software, the answer is basically "Approved" "Not Approved".

The mag stripe on the card carries very little information. Rewards programs from stores, OTOH, are whatever the store wants.

It doesn't show anything like personal information. All I see is if it's 'debit' or 'credit' so I can hit the appropriate button on the register.
