Visa payWave card

Visa Desjardins is gradually rolling out new payWave contactless payment technology on its chip cards. For purchases under $100, all you'll need to do is wave your Visa card in front of a secure reader.

To see if you have access to this service, check for the payWave symbol on your card1.

  • No PIN or signature required.
  • Payment is made by waving your card near the reader.
  • You cannot be billed twice for a purchase.

Where can I use it?

More and more restaurants, gas stations, coffee shops and convenience stores accept this new technology.
