What is a Contactless card and what are the benefits?
A Contactless card payment utilizes a Radio Frequency (RF) technology, allowing cardholders to “wave” their Contactless card over a Contactless-enabled point-of-sale (POS) terminal. The embedded antenna transmits the payment info to the Contactless-enabled terminal using a one-time use code with each transaction. These new features allow for a secure, fast, and easy transaction process.
How secure are Contactless Cards?
Every Contactless card payment transaction includes a one-time use, dynamic data for the transaction. This same data cannot be used for other transactions. In addition, each Contactless device must have its own unique secret key and this key is never transmitted.
How do I make a Contactless card transaction?
- Verify that there is a Contactless symbol on the transaction terminal.
- Tap or hold your Visa card within 3 inches or so to a transaction terminal.
How do I use my card if a store's terminal does not have the Contactless symbol/feature?
Your new card also includes an embedded microchip and magnetic stripe, so that if you find your favorite stores have not updated their transaction terminals, you can use your new card in the same way that you had used a standard card.
