Contactless and Apple Pay
Don’t forget, with Flight Centre Mastercard you can use Contactless and Apple Pay^. You can use your Flight Centre Mastercard during this time for Contactless purchases of up to $200, however, it is merchant dependent. For Contactless payments over $200, the terminal will still ask for a PIN number so just follow the prompts.
Using Apple Pay with your Flight Centre Mastercard?
The $200 PIN limit will automatically be applied to payments made in store using your mobile phone with Apple Pay. You will not have to make any changes to the existing card details on your phone. You may have noticed that some terminals already don’t ask for a PIN. This is because some terminals are set up to know your mobile has identified you using your fingerprint or face ID, and don’t then require a PIN for any limit. That will continue at those terminals.
New to Contactless Payments? Here’s what you need to know:
All you need to do is follow the usual prompts on the PIN pad when paying. If the limit has become active on that payment terminal, it will kick in automatically. You will simply see the Contactless symbol show on screen, hold your card directly above the screen and you will see the status of your payment on screen. That’s it.
What about safety and security?
Flight Centre Mastercard will continue to monitor transaction accounts and alert customers to any unusual activity. If you have any concerns about unauthorised transactions on your account, please contact us. We also advise all customers to treat their Contactless cards like they would cash and take the necessary precautions to keep them safe. While Contactless cards are a secure way to pay, if lost or stolen, they should be reported immediately here.
Take care of yourself, your whānau and your loved ones.
