How to choose the right credit card as a student
Forget fumbling for cash - Visa payWave will help you spend less time at the register. For transactions under $200*, just wave your Visa payWave enabled card in front of a payWave reader and go – there is no need for a signature or PIN.
All Heritage Visa Cards are payWave enabled. You can use Visa payWave for purchases under $200* at participating merchants. There is no need to swipe your card, enter your PIN or sign for your transaction.
|1. Look for the contactless payment symbol|
|2. When the purchase amount appears on the terminal, hold your card against the Visa payWave reader|
|3. Green lights on the terminal will indicate that your transaction has been approved. Collect your receipt if you asked for one, and you're on your way|
You’ll feel secure knowing your card never leaves your hand during your purchase. Visa payWave cards are backed by Visa’s Zero liability policy# and are as secure as any other Visa chip card.
It’s not possible for your card to be accidentally charged, because your card needs to be within 4cm of the contactless reader for more than half a second, and the merchant needs to have initiated the transaction and displayed the amount on the reader.
Your card is embedded with the latest chip technology, which provides data protection and transaction security.
