Unlock Tap-to-Pay Magic of Your Debit Card
Authored By: UnitedOne Credit Union on 6/20/2024

UnitedOne Visa Debit Card has tap-to-pay technologyYou’re seeing it more and more.

You’re waiting in line at a store and notice the person in front of you using a card to pay. Much to your bewilderment, though, they don’t swipe or insert their card into the terminal. 

The individual simply holds the card close to the terminal and they are on their way.

If you’re wondering how this person accomplished the magical feat to pay without touching anything and would like to know how you can do the same, then please keep reading.

Contactless payments use short-range wireless technology. It’s a quick and secure way to make payments with a card, like the UnitedOne Visa® debit card.

You can tell if your card has this capability if it has printed on the front the contactless symbol, which resembles a WiFi signal.

This method of payment is also referred to as tap to pay. However, you don’t actually need to tap the checkout terminal with your card. You simply need to hold it about an inch or two away when prompted to pay.

A growing number of merchants now offer contactless payments. If they do, you’ll see the contactless symbol on the terminal at checkout.

Besides being convenient, contactless payments are also more secure. That’s because a one-time code is generated and used to process your payment with the merchant. This means your account number and information isn’t exchanged with each transaction to help reduce fraud.

All new UnitedOne Visa® debit cards are issued with tap-to-pay technology.

If you have an older card without tap-to-pay technology built into it, you can still start using contactless payments today by loading your card into your mobile device’s mobile wallet. All you need then is your mobile device to pay anywhere contactless payments are accepted.

What are you waiting for? Start using tap-to-pay technology today! Discover more details about the UnitedOne Visa® debit card and contactless payment options available to you.
