With the my debit card, clients can pay for purchases more quickly and simply
Today National Bank is announcing the launch of its new my debit contactless debit card, which allows clients to make purchases simply, quickly, and completely securely.
The new card, equipped with the Interac Flash feature, allows clients to make purchases of $100 or less at a merchant without having to enter their personal identification number (PIN). Payment is made immediately by holding the debit card in front of the sales terminal.
Clients who use a National Bank debit card will receive the new my debit card progressively over the coming months.
The launch of a new contactless debit card is the latest in a series
of new products and services, including the recently unveiled new
nbc.ca site, new ABMs, Apple Pay and Google Pay for credit cards, and
a mobile app for businesses.
- With the new contactless debit card, purchases of $100 or less
can be made instantly at a merchant without having to enter a PIN,
which simplifies the client's day-to-day transactions.
- Payments made using contactless technology are just as
secure as other methods. The client's PIN will be requested during
their initial transaction and then randomly after a certain number
of contactless transactions. Clients also benefit from additional
protection, offered by the Bank, in the event of fraudulent
- Clients can decrease their
contactless payment limit at their convenience or even deactivate it
by setting their limit to zero. Once deactivated, the feature can
also be reactivated upon request.
- Clients who
use a National Bank debit card will receive the my debit card
will remain the same.
- In the next few months,
the Bank will continue to simplify and enhance its clients'
experience by rolling out a brand new transaction site for Personal
Banking clients, new online mortgage features and a mobile
point-of-sale solution for businesses.
"We're pleased to offer the new my debit card to our clients so that they can pay for their purchases more quickly and simply, and just as securely as ever. This is yet another initiative to expand the Bank's mobile and contactless payment solution offering in order to simplify the client experience," stated Lucie Blanchet, Executive Vice-President – Personal Banking and Marketing at National Bank.
