As a business owner, you know firsthand that customers insist on choice and convenience, especially when it comes to how they pay for goods and services. Chances are you’ve already noticed them moving away from cash and cheques and increasingly relying on debit and credit cards.

The Benefits of Acceptance
Both you and your customers benefit when you accept credit cards:

Accept Debit Cards
We lead the way in Canada with Online Debit Payments. If you have an ecommerce business, it’s easy to add online debit to your acceptance.
If you already accept credit cards, Visa Debit is another way to expand into new markets, and reach new customers who prefer to pay by debit.
Broaden your customer base
Visa Debit is a great tool for merchants who wish to expand into new markets, especially the youth market, who shop online but may not have credit cards. It could help you increase sales by mail or telephone too.
No add-ons, plug-ins or upgrades
If you are an online business who already accepts Visa credit cards, you’re ready to accept Visa Debit. Visa Debit is the only debit card in Canada to allow one-step debiting of funds without logging into a separate bank account.
- Simplicity: Visa Debit helps simplify the checkout process as it allows consumers to complete their purchase without having to leave the checkout and log in to their bank account. Thus completing the transaction faster.
- Security: Includes the Visa’s Layers of Security, including Visa Zero Liability Policy, Verified by Visa, AVS (Address Verification Service) and CVV2 (the three-digit code). Getting started is simple if you already accept Visa credit transactions.
Chip and PIN
Chip and PIN technology has predominantly replaced magnetic stripe cards; we can help you to be ready to accept these cards. These payment cards, containing a microcomputer chip, also known as smart cards, bring Canadian merchants and customers a full range of benefits including:
Enhanced Security and Fraud Reduction
Chip technology is virtually impossible to copy and combining its use with a PIN helps reduce lost, stolen or counterfeit transactions.
The use of PIN transfers merchant responsibility for authentication (verifying a signature) to the Chip technology, and in turn reduces chargebacks.
PIN is faster than a signature, reducing the time spent on requesting and verifying cardholder signatures.
Contactless Payments – Get Your Business Moving Faster
Contactless payments offer a fast and secure way to accept debit and credit cards to help you serve more customers in less time. With one tap of a contactless card, customers can pay for their purchase without swiping and signing or having to insert a card and key a PIN. Contactless readers provide speed and convenience by reducing the time for service with a shorter transaction time at check out.
With no need for a PIN or signature, low-ticket purchases are easier - customers simply tap to pay and can be on their way. Plus, providing a receipt is optional, saving on time and paper.
Technology & Security
Contactless payments operate with the same payment structure used to transmit traditional debit and credit card payments. The contactless reader scans the payment information using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology allowing the card to simply be waved or tapped against the contactless reader to complete a transaction.
With transaction limits in place by the payment brands, this payment method is targeted for low ticket purchases. Features such as this could protect merchants from costly chargebacks.

For any small business, adopting a new technology can mean additional costs or new infrastructure. Fortunately, Chase Paymentech has a line-up of POS solutions with contactless payment capabilities already built in. These solutions will allow you to easily accept contactless payments a give you a cost- effective way to adopt new technology, while maintaining your ability to accept credit cards and manual payments.
