Why won't paywave work on my card at some merchants?
Your payWave may not be working because of a new change in the payments industry that has meant a lot of merchants are now routing their contactless payments through eftpos.
This means your Visa payWave payment will be declined if:
If you run into this issue, retry the payment by inserting your card into the machine, and selecting savings/cheque to complete your purchase.
This will activate eftpos contactless payments on your card and you'll be able to use contactless payments at this merchant going forward.
