Waiting for your turn to pay in a long queue is a dilemma for people on the go. Sometimes the long line in the supermarket are caused by credit card transactions because the process still requires the cardholder to sign for the purchases they made.
The good news, Citibank Visa launches its first contactless credit card in the Philippines – the Citibank Visa payWave. It’s the first contactless credit card in the Philippines.
How does the Citibank Visa payWave works? It’s simple as waving your card in front of a visa payWave reader to pay for your goods. It’s faster, more secure and hassle-free payment option.
Faster, because you just need to tap or wave your card in front of the Visa payWave card reader to pay for your purchases.
Secure, because you don’t need to give your credit card to the cashier for them to process your transaction. The card is equipped with an antenna and microchip allowing it to communicate with a secure contactless radar when held within close proximity.
Hassle-free, because you don’t need to sign for purchases below P2,000. You also have the option to collect your receipt or not.
Another good news about Citibank Visa payWave, you can instantly pay even for a one peso purchase!
Presently, the Citibank Visa payWave cards are accepted at Robinsons Supermarket Express Lanes; Mercury Drug; Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf; Eastwood and Lucky Chinatown Cinemas in Metro Manila. By November cardholders can use contactless payment at McDonalds and Newport Cinemas. Citi hopes to expand the use of contactless Visa cards in the coming months.
