Is the cardholder required to enter a PIN?

9 February 2023

Yes. A four (4) digit PIN will need to be entered on the keypad by the SmartCard cardholder for the transaction to be validated for their purchases.

The SmartCard can be enabled by customers for contactless transactions.  Payment can be made by tapping the card on a contactless enabled terminal and waiting for the transaction to be confirmed. Cardholders will not need to enter a PIN for purchases of $100 or less (the maximum value threshold may be increased from time to time).
