Belarusbank Becomes the first Belarusian Bank to Receive a Visa Certificate for Contactless Acquiring

Belarusbank has become the first bank in Belarus certified to acquire Visa contactless cards (Visa payWave).

This certificate will ensure a whole new level of service for Belarusbank cardholders as well as enable the Bank to issue contactless cards.

payWave is a contactless payment technology that allows cardholders to make payments for goods and services in an easy, fast and secure way. Contactless cards should not be swiped through a credit card terminal for payment, the cardholder should only hold the card in front of the terminal instead. Each Visa payWave card is embedded with a microchip and an antenna that transmits transaction information to a contactless payment terminal.
