Bank of Valletta changing current cards to contactless ones
|Email item||Print item||
Contactless cards are replacing the current Bank of Valletta cards. Speaking about the project, Ivo Camilleri Executive Electronic Banking explained that, “the past few months have seen the roll out of the project at retail outlets where the Bank’s POS machines are gradually being enabled to accept contactless cards.
“This process will continue over the coming months until all POS machines within retail establishments are contactless enabled. This second phase of the project is now being extended to the upgrade of all eligible debit and credit cards. The new contactless cards, which have also been given a fresh look with new artwork, allow the cardholder to effect regular contact transactions, whilst also enabling contactless transactions.”
“Paying for a transaction becomes as simple as tapping your card over the card reader. Payments of up to EUR20 will just need to be tapped to the terminal without the need to enter the PIN to authorise the transaction,” he said.
