They do in countries with modern payment systems.

It's called "EMV" or "Chip+Pin".
There's also "paypass" and "paywave" - aka NFC.

I can't swipe my card in a local terminal even if I wanted to. There is data in the magstrip that says the terminal must use the chip if it can. There are no terminals that can't in NZ anymore.
