INTERAC Flash® The fast and easy way to pay.

INTERAC Flash®, the contactless version of Interac® Debit, is the secure way to make everyday small purchases faster and more conveniently.


HOW DOES IT WORK?

Briefly hold your Interac Flash-enabled debit card over the contactless payment terminal and your purchase is automatically paid for right from your account.

THE SECURE WAY TO PAY.

Interac Flash has a single-transaction limit of $100, and a total-spend limit set by your financial institution, which requires a PIN verification to confirm you are the rightful cardholder. For more information on how you're protected when you use Interac Flash, click here.

TOP THREE MYTHS DEBUNKED

Myth #1 - Fraudsters can steal my card information right from my wallet.

Not true. Interac Flash uses EMV-based secure chip processing instead of magnetic stripe data processing. This protects Interac Flash against skimming, counterfeiting, and transaction replay types of fraud. The information on an Interac® Debit card cannot be unwrapped or duplicated to produce a counterfeit card or transaction. Basically, the information on your card is useless to a criminal.

Myth #2 - I might pay for something by standing too close to a merchant terminal with an Interac Flash-enabled debit card in my wallet.

Not true. Your card needs to be less than four centimetres away from the terminal and positioned at a particular angle in order to make a purchase.

Myth #3 - If my Interac Flash-enabled debit card is lost or stolen, my account could be emptied before I even realize it.

Not sure. Spending limits require the cardholder to enter their PIN once set limits are reached. Typical limits are $100 for single transactions and $200 cumulative limits. Consumers using Interac Flash are also covered by the Interac Zero Liabiliy Policy.

WHAT IF I LOSE BY MEMBERCARD?
