How to use Visa payWave

Need to make a quick payment? Anything under $80 won’t require a PIN when you use Visa payWave - you can just wave and go. If you do spend over $80 simply enter your PIN as you normally would.


How it works
  • Look for the Visa payWave symbol in participating stores

  • Check the amount displayed on the terminal is correct & wave your card in front of the terminal. If a PIN is required, you’ll be prompted to enter that

  • Listen for the terminal to beep and give the green light, then check your transaction has been approved

  • And that’s it, your transaction is complete

A friendly reminder: If you’ve got other contactless cards, take care not to hold your wallet next to the terminal when paying.

Braille added to Visa Classic Credit 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 Classic Credit Cards will have ‘TSB C’ 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.
