Debit and Credit Cards
Yes! This service was designed for both Visa credit and debit cards when shopping online. When you use your Visa debit card, your online transaction experience will be similar to a credit transaction.
Can I still use my Solarity Visa card at online merchants that are not participating in Visa Secure?
Yes, your Solarity Visa card will continue to work as usual if the merchant isn’t participating. The transaction will still be protected by multiple layers of security and zero liability for fraudulent purchases.
No, you do not have to use Contactless payment. Even if the payment terminal has Contactless capability, you can still choose to insert or swipe your debit or credit card.
Absolutely! Here's why:
- Just like with a chip card, each transaction generates a one-time code.
- You can't pay accidentally—your card or device must be within 1- 2 inches of the terminal for the sale to take place. And even if you tap twice, you'll only be billed once.
- Tapping to pay with your Visa Contactless card or payment-enabled device helps you avoid touching surfaces at checkout.
When I see the Visa Secure badge, what does this mean? How are my online purchases secured with Visa?
Visa has developed a program that helps confirm your identity when you make an online purchase. This service helps make shopping online more secure by protecting against unauthorized use of your Visa card. There’s no need to download anything, install software, or register for an account. During an online purchase from your desktop, mobile or other digital device, you may be guided through an extra check to verify your identity. This helps us ensure you’re you and better protects you from fraud.
We have a few different ways we can verify your identity. If you happen to encounter this extra step, simply follow the instructions on your screen to verify your identity. This step is designed to prevent any fraudsters from using your credit card for online purchases.
This service automatically works at checkout at participating merchants. There is no need to download anything, install software or register for your account to get this added layer of protection. When using this service, you may occasionally be prompted at checkout to verify your identity, but this is to ensure you’re you and protect you from fraud.
