TSB Visa Debit and Credit cards issued from 8 April 2020 will accept contactless payments up to $200 without a PIN.
For purchases over $200, you’ll be prompted to enter your PIN before the transaction can be accepted. This is a temporary increase from the current $80 prompt for PIN, due to COVID-19, to allow our customers to complete in-store transactions quickly and safely. Cards currently held by customers will continue to have an $80 limit at this stage. See our COVID-19 FAQs for more.

How it works
Braille added to Visa Debit cards
Putting customers first is at the heart of our philosophy, so we’re always looking for ways that we can improve our services. We’ve been working closely with the Blind Foundation and are excited to announce that our Visa Debit Cards will have ‘TSB D’ printed in braille on them. This is to help our vision impaired customers identify which card they’re using, as well as identify the orientation of their card.
Setting up your card
When you set up your Visa Debit card, you can choose the account you’d like to use as a default account when no selection is available, like when you shop online. You can also specify which of your savings or cheque accounts you'd like Visa Debit to use when you do have a selection choice.
When you do have a selection choice, like cheque or savings, you can choose which account you’d like your Visa Debit card to access.
