Visa’s much-discussed payWave system has now launched in the famous golden arch burger joint McDonald’s.
Paying for your burger and side of fries has now become even easier, and less time consuming. The contactless payment system from Visa, called payWave allows you to simply wave your Visa card in front of the terminal, then go on and enjoy your meal.
No More Timely Queues
This is especially helpful when you are stuck in a lunchtime queue and want to grab your meal on the run. payWave allows you to save time and pay hassle free on any McDonald checkout come end of month.
Chris Clark, Visa’s GM said: “The Visa payWave system makes everyday transactions faster and more convenient. It’s exciting to see one of the world’s largest and most successful Quick Service Restaurants offer this service to Australian customers.”
“Visa payWave-enabled cards are as secure as any other Visa chip card and carry the same multiple layers of security, including Visas Zero Liability, which ensures Visa cardholders are not responsible for fraudulent or unauthorised transactions.”
“In addition, with Visa payWave, the card never leaves your hand, which reduces the risk of fraud.”
Similar words of optimism was exclaimed by CIO of McDonald Henry Shiner. In order to improve customer experience McDonald is dedicated to introducing simplified measures. The contactless system payWave saves time and hassles for all involved and is valid for transactions of up to $100.
This handy “wave” allows you to enjoy more flexible checkout while buying your meals.
No Signature, No PIN for Under $100
The signature and PIN-free way to shop has been enjoyed by Australian consumers in various outlets in the past. As more and more shops introduce payWave, more customers can enjoy the convenience of fast checkouts.
Mr Clark even stated that the future in Australia would see us using less cash and more of these payWave cards because they are fast, secure and kind of fun to boot.
