Speaking on the latest development, dfcu Bank’s Head of Personal & Business Banking, Robert Wanok said; “We have introduced the Visa Contactless Credit Card to make it possible for our customers to conveniently make transactions across the globe. With access to over 40 million outlets worldwide, our Visa card gives our customers exceptional purchasing power.”
According to Robert Wanok, the card which is Contactless or ‘Tap and Go’ is safer and faster. “Generally speaking, contactless transactions do away with all the strenuous steps customers have been accustomed to. In fact, they don’t even need to enter a PIN or give a signature for lower value transactions. It makes it possible for users to complete the transaction in merely a few seconds,” he said.
When it comes to the safety of contactless transactions, the dfcu Visa Credit Card comes with an embedded chip technology that ensures utmost safety during each transaction. These cards can be used by any payment machine equipped with secure technology to accept pin-less payments, as well as traditional ones where the insertion of the card and pin is required. However, the best EFTPOS machine is ideally designed to cater to customers that wish to make contactless payments with these credit cards. Every contactless payment made is also covered by multi-layer protection, ensuring complete safety of information. The fact that the card is always in the customer’s hand during any contactless payment makes it even safer.
In the coming days, dfcu will also carry out a series of activities to educate customers and the general public on safety issues, tracking expenses, maintaining control of their credit and finances and so much more.
Customers will be able to apply for the credit card from any dfcu branch countrywide at no extra cost. This card represents our commitment to deliver to our customers the highest quality services that work on the global market.
