Why use a VISA Debit Card?

Our VISA Debit Card allows you to pay for groceries, services and even bills online, from the comfort of your own home. Using a VISA Debit card is like using cash, except you are using the funds directly from your linked transaction account.

The Chip in the card also means you can complete contactless payments using “tap to pay” for purchases under $100 (if you make a purchase over $100, you will still need to enter your PIN).

Protection for your money

When you use your VISA Debit Card you can safely and securely make purchases online with the assurance from VerifiedbyVisa.

Plus, with Online Banking you have complete control over your card:

  • You can modify your card PIN if you believe your PIN has been compromised.
  • If you are worried your card has been lost, you can quickly temporarily block your card to ensure no further transactions can be made.
  • If your card is stolen, you can notify us via Internet Banking. This will ensure the card cannot be enabled for use. We will contact you to re-issue you with a new card.
  • Subscribe to our Email Alert Service so you can identify any suspicious transaction(s) and stop them quickly.
