Best practice advice regarding contactless transactions is being issued to members, along with a reminder to be alert to unusual activity.
The advice, which can be downloaded below, contains a recommendation that any customer attempting to make multiple contactless transactions be asked to pay by chip and pin.
Don’t forget that from October 14 a new zero floor limit with Visa took effect which could result in transactions taking a few seconds longer than before.
Visa introduced the zero floor limit to help protect cardholders against the risk of fraud. It means that every card transaction has to be authorised online by the card issuer.
