    Punjab National Bank Wave & Pay Credit Card FAQs

    1. How will the card work?

      The Wave & Pay Credit Card by PNB is embedded with a chip and a radio frequency antenna which helps in the contactless transactions made with the card. When the card is tapped against a machine, the payment details are transmitted wirelessly. The account details are seen on the machine and then processed through the Visa network.

    2. Is the Wave & Pay Credit Card more secure?

      The Wave & Pay Credit Card is much more secure as it doesn’t involve any exchange of the card for a payment to be made. The credit card is always in the hand of the cardholder to make transactions.

    3. Where can the Wave & Pay Credit Card be used?

      The credit card can be used anywhere a PoS machine is available. However, in case of the PoS machine being unavailable, the card can be used to swipe or dip as well.

    4. How far does the 'tap' have to be to the machine reader?

      All one has to do, is bring the card close to the machine for the reader to get the details of the card.

    5. Is there any limit on the value of products a customer can purchase with the credit card?

      There is no limit given for the value of products which a customer can purchase with the card. However, the contactless technology of the card can be used for any transaction amounting to Rs.2,000. For transactions above the value of Rs.2,000, the PIN or the signature of the cardholder is required as per the guidelines by RBI.

    6. How will purchases appear in the monthly statement?

      The purchases made on the card will appear like any other purchase made with a regular credit card. Contactless credit cards are different only as a payment method.

    7. What if a contactless transaction takes place as a customer is passing by?

      The contactless technology in the Wave & Pay credit card will work only when the card is waved at a maximum range of 2cms. Hence, even if the customer is at a short distance from the terminal, no transaction can take place.

    8. Will a customer be charged twice if the card is tapped more than once at a terminal?

      No. With the security of the card, even if it is tapped more than once at the terminal, the customer will only get billed only once for the purchase.

    9. How will the cardholder know if the transaction is successful?

      The cardholder will receive a charge-slip from the merchant where the transaction has taken place and also will receive an SMS on the registered mobile phone number once the transaction is successful.

    10. What can be done if the card is lost or stolen?

      In case of loss or theft, the customer should contact the PNB customer care or visit the nearest branch and request for the card to be blocked and request for a replacement card.
