Where to use your Visa payWave cardLEARN MORE
Visa payWave is a secure, contactless technology that will help you spend less time at the register and give you the freedom to do the things that matter most to you.
It's easy and convenient
For transactions under $100, just wave your Visa payWave-enabled card in front of a contactless reader and go - there's no need for a signature or pin. Visa payWave is accepted at Australia's leading retailers, including Coles, Woolworths, McDonald's, 7-11, JB Hi-Fi, Bunnings and Caltex. Shopping for everyday items has never been easier.
Safe and secure.
Visa payWave-enabled cards are backed by Visa's Zero Liability Policy1 and are as secure as any other Visa chip card. They carry the same multiple layers of security, which ensures that you are not responsible for fraudulent or unauthorised transactions.
Visa payWave cards only work when the card is within 4cm of the card reader and the payWave terminal can only process one transaction at a time. Because your Visa payWave card doesn't leave your hand during the transaction, you remain in control of your card at all times.
1 Visa's Zero Liability policy covers Australian and New Zealand-issued cards and does not apply to ATM transactions, transactions not processed by Visa or certain commercial card transactions. Cardholders should notify their issuer promptly of any unauthorised Visa use. Please consult your issuer for additional details.

How it works
Look for the contactless symbol at the point of sale.
The cashier enters the purchase amount into the terminal. This amount is displayed on the Visa payWave reader.
When the first green link blinks, hold your card over the reader at close range (less than 4cm from where the logo appears), see below.
Four green lights appear when the transaction is complete. This takes no longer than half a second. You can choose to have a receipt printed, but this is optional. No signature or pin is required.*
*For purchase under $100.
