Make purchases online quickly and easily by using just a username and password. No more re-entering your card number or shipping address for every purchase.

If your total is over $50, you need to insert your card and sign for your purchase. Just like you normally would.

Sometimes, when you use your VISA payWave at places at gas stations, you may not need to provide your signature or enter a PIN even if the total is over $50.

Don’t worry. An accidental wave doesn’t mean you’ll be charged. The store clerk would need to complete the transaction twice for the charge to go through twice.

Your Scotiabank VISA card with VISA payWave must be very close to a card reader to complete the transaction. Your card won’t be charged just because you walked by a checkout. Finally, you can also always request a receipt just to ensure that you weren’t charged more than once.

Your VISA payWave purchases will appear on your Visa statement and look just like any other purchase you make with your card.

If your card is lost or stolen, or if you think that someone is using your card without your permission, call us immediately:

·        In Canada/USA call 1(800) 387-6556

·        Outside Canada/USA, call collect: 1(800) 472-6842

We’ll deactivate your card and send you a new one.
