Phone says NO SIM CARD

I bought a Moto g4 Play. I got it in yesterday. When I put in the SIM it is saying no sim card. This looks like the small microchip. Do I have to purchase a SIM?

please try cleaning the SIM

Did you purchase the G4 from Republic? Are you trying to insert the SIM card that came with the phone, if you purchased from Republic?
