Contactless card PIN Limits

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Monday, 06 April 2020 16:22

In direct response to the Covid-19 pandemic, AusPayNet (self-regulatory body for the payments industry ) have announced that the industry will be increasing the PIN limit for contactless card payments from $100 to $200 to reduce the need for physical contact with the payment terminal. This will come into effect for our Members from 6 April 2020 and is expected to apply for a three-month period.

However, due to the way the Wesfarmers group (Coles, Kmart, Target, Liquorland, Vintage Cellars, Bi-Lo, Officeworks) process contactless transactions, you could be charged fees for paying with Tap and GO/payWave. We remind our Members that when using your NICU Visa Debit card at the businesses listed, insert your card and select 'Credit' or 'Visa Debit' to ensure that it is a fee-free transaction.

You can read more about the AusPayNet PIN limit changes on their website
