Contactless "Tap to Pay" Transactions
Tap to Pay Debit Cards
CommunityAmerica's contactless "tap to pay" debit cards make transactions secure and convenient.
Each CommunityAmerica debit card has contactless technology built-in to help speed up and secure your transactions. A contactless transaction creates a one-time code made up of a complex algorithm to accompany your payment information, helping to prevent fraud. When you tap to pay, this code is automatically transmitted with your account number. Your name, billing address and card verification code aren’t transmitted. Tap to pay debit cards will still work in the traditional manner by swiping or inserting the chip.
Point-of-Sale terminals that accept tap to pay transactions will show the below contactless symbol, similar to a Wi-Fi symbol with four curved lines getting bigger from left to right.
