Now you can spend less time at the register and have more time to do the things that matter most to you. Visa payWave is easy and convenient to use. Just wave your Visa payWave-enabled card in front of a Visa payWave reader and go – there’s no need for a signature or PIN.

Safe and secure
Visa payWave cards are as secure as any other Visa chip card and carry the same multiple layers of security. They only work when the card is within 4cm of the card reader and the payWave terminal can only process one transaction at a time. Because your Visa payWave card doesn’t leave your hand during the transaction, you remain in control of your card at all times. 
 
How do I use my Visa payWave card?

 

 
Look for the contactless symbol and Visa logo at the point of sale.


Inform the cashier you would like to pay with Visa payWave. The cashier will enter the purchase amount into the terminal which is then displayed on the Visa payWave reader.


When the first blue light blinks, hold your card over the contactless symbol on the reader at close range (less than 4cm).


The yellow light lets you know the card is being read and processed. Do not remove the card when the yellow light is on.


The green light appears when the transaction is complete. This takes no longer than half a second. You can remove your card now. You can choose to have a receipt printed, but this is optional. No signature or PIN is required.
