Visa Paywave and MasterCard PayPass can be used to make contactless transactions by simply waving your card over the reader on EFTPOS terminals equipped with contactless functionality.
- Look for this symbol: , and the MasterCard PayPass or Visa Paywave logo on the reader.
- Once the merchant has entered the amount to pay, follow the on-screen prompts and tap your card against the contactless reader. If you are in New Zealand and the transaction is over $80, you may need to enter your PIN number. (Please note the purchase amount overseas will vary from country to country.)
- Wait until the reader beeps and the lights illuminate and then remove your card and you’re done. If you’d like a receipt then simply request one.
