Citi Philippines and Visa introduced the Citibank Visa payWave, the first contactless credit card payment technology in the country.
This new payment innovation offers Citibank Visa cardholders a faster, secure and hassle-free payment option, which is set to change the local payments landscape for both retailers and consumers. Citibank is motivating contactless payments in the Philippines with the Visa payWave credit card and by partnering with merchants to offer the payment technology to customers.
The Citibank Visa payWave allows cardholders to make payment through simply waving their cards in front of a Visa payWave reader. Cardholders also have the convenience of making transactions without the need to sign purchases below PHP 2,000, but are given the option to collect the receipt.
The payWave contactless payments are accepted at Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Mercury Drug, Robinson’s Supermarket, Eastwood and Lucky China Cinemas and soon at Newport Cinemas and McDonald’s.
