Yes, I love paywave or Paypass as it is so quick -just tap your credit card and bleep and it is finished.
It only works up to $100 I think.
Great invention as dont have to key in a password. I look forward also to the fingerprint one coming!
Rice are you sure we are talking about the same thing my darling? The banks now are giving everyone these, and you just don't have to insert the card or swipe it, which means the card will last longer....because before I would use my card, and it was so well used, it didn't work at times.I had to leave my shopping trolley full of food.And if the bank was closed, had to wait till next day to order another card, and let the teller give me cash out...as they has the manual card swiper. :)
you are covered by the bank for fraud so why worry about the risk - only risk is if you lose your card, and you wont be out of pocket.....you people are all anti technology?? Out of about 25 customers at our shop, we possibly get 1 who does not like it - so quick and easy and instant!
It is convenient and quick yes, use it wisely like all other technology. You don't have to tap, you can choose to insert for any amount. Dont use a card at all. I wonder how much it is costing the community for all the small amounts like coffee?
I am not overly fond of this at all.When I went to pay the chemist and she told me it had already gone through, I was HORRIFIED!!! What if I had not even finished shopping and wanted to add something else? Oh! Just do another wave!!I hear you lovers of this say!!! No thank you, I prefer to put my pin number in and know exactly where I am up to!! I know it may suit a lot of people, and that is fine, for THEM! But I prefer NOT to have or use it!
I'm with you too Vee , , , far too easy to tap and go with paywave. My brother is hard of hearing and he loathes it as he can't hear the first beep, never mind any unauthorised ones. The banks have got a nerve not asking first. Unless you have an RFID wallet or purse you could be paywaving by accident if you are too close. Crims have already figured out how to walk past you and do it.
No. There is such a high rate of credit card fraud using Pay Wave, and the police do not recommend it at all. You could drop your credit card in the supermarket car park, I could pick it up and use it straight away, because there is no security device such as a PIN to prevent me from doing so. I get angry sometimes when I am at the coffee shop and the staff do not always get my consent before they use Pay Wave.
Love it. Saves so much time particularly as my card often chooses not to work on insertion and you have to go through the process 3 times before you then have to swipe. Strange thing is that it only seems to do this in Woolworths.
