Georgia: First to Use PayWave in the Region

“Simply wave your card in front of a secure reader and you’re on your way,” says Visa’s new service PayWave, a wireless way to pay your money without much technical humdrum. According to Visa, Georgia is becoming a leader to use PayWave technology in the region. 

Visa payWave is a secure, faster, easier way to pay for everyday purchases.

It’s Convenient.

Visa payWave lets you breeze through check out faster since you don’t need to fumble for cash. Simply wave your card in front of a secure reader and you’re on your way.

It’s Secure.

  • Visa payWave transactions offer multiple levels of security.
    • Transaction Protection:Cards can only be read within 1-2 inches from the secure reader and each transaction is accompanied by a unique security code to protect against fraudulent use. Plus, you maintain control of the card at all times, which reduces the risk of fraud.
    • Real Time Fraud Monitoring:Visa payWave payments are also processed through the same reliable network as swipe transactions. These transactions are monitored continuously for suspicious activity so we can identify and respond to fraudulent activity immediately
    • Zero Liability:If your card is ever lost or stolen, you’re protected with Zero Liability for unauthorized purchases.
