Using the Visa PayWave-enable cards, consumers can just wave the card over the reader or tap-in with the use of a card terminal. Visa PayWave assures faster processing by removing the need for the client to handover the payment instrument and is ensuring enhanced convenience for the customer by enabling easy card authorization at the merchant's point-of-sale. The Visa PayWave logo is prominently displayed on the Visa cards in order to make the payment process as seamless as possible. Customers will enjoy an uncluttered payment procedure without having to worry about the cards having to be discarded or the cash being withdrawn.
The payware card does not require any additional software or equipment to access the payment process, but some software and hardware devices are required to handle the transaction and send and receive information about the payment. When the client swipes the plastic card or swipes a keypad, the transaction is immediately covered by the payment protection provided by Visa PayWave. This protects the payment process from unauthorized credit card purchases by the client, while also ensuring that the merchant's point-of-sale is protected from fraud or other unauthorized transactions.
There are several options of payment protection that can be used by the client. For example, users may select a specific credit card number or a variety of credit card offers by Visa, by using which they can get the protection they want. Alternatively, the client may choose to opt for a generic payment protection number which has a single or double digit number and which is linked with a specific bank account.
The choice of Visa payment protection varies according to the customer's requirements. The number of the specific card and the credit card offers are also considered by some clients. The selection of the payment protection option depends on the types of purchases made by the client, his budget, and the kind of transaction he wishes to carry out.
Some customers who travel frequently choose to acquire Visa payware, and hence choose to have a fixed number of credit cards. The fixed card number allows the client to use a single card number and thereby eliminates the need for multiple cards. A fixed number also provides the client with better security, as it is unlikely that a client could misuse the credit card number or the number of his choice.
For the merchants, Visa paywave helps increase the conversion rate of credit card sales and thus helps them generate more revenue. and avoid incurring losses through non-payment of credit cardholders. Since the customer can swipe the card anywhere, whether at the merchant's point-of-sale or a kiosklever terminal, the process becomes more convenient and hassle free.
