Did we mention it’s secure?
Interac Flash uses EMV-based secure chip processing, instead of magnetic stripe data type processing. This protects your new MemberCard against skimming, counterfeiting, and transaction replay types of fraud, including electronic pick-pocketing.
Plus, there’s additional protection with spending limits.
If using the tap function, no single transaction can exceed $100 and the total cumulative expense of tap transactions cannot exceed $200. When the single or cumulative spend limit is reached, you’ll be prompted to insert your card and enter the PIN to complete the transaction.
This adds a layer of protection and ensures there’s a step to validate that you’re indeed using your MemberCard.
