What is payWave?
Visa payWave is a contactless method of payment for purchases under $100. The technology built into your payWave-enabled Visa card allows you to pay quickly and conveniently by waving your card over a secure contactless terminal without having to enter your PIN.
For purchases over $100, you will be prompted to enter your PIN.
Visa payWave cards carry the same layers of security as any other Visa chip card, including Visa’s Zero Liability, which ensures Visa cardholders are protected from unauthorised transactions. Furthermore, Visa payWave terminals are designed to only make one transaction at a time per card. Each transaction must be complete or void before another one can take place.
Any participating retailer or ATM that displays the contactless symbol can accept payWave payments.
