Do electronic credit card readers require signatures?

Original post made by Germaphobe in Winter, Palo Alto High School, on Dec 8, 2013

Can we just put a dot or press OKAY or YES or whatever confirmation word? I suppose I could just try, but wondering if anyone knows the scoop. Does anyone check the signatures? Is a dot enough or does it require a line? I just don't want to have to touch the pen. I doubt anyone can recognize their signatures on those except perhaps the first letter.

For years my husband and I just scribble something. No signature. So you could probably use your own pen or just scribble something with your fingers/nails. Just try. They probably won't even ask what you are doing. I'll try for you the next time I'm at a store.
