Pay with full peace of mind with Mastercard®

Safer than cash

When it comes to peace of mind, there’s no better way to pay than with your payment card. There’s a whole range of safety tools and security features built into your card. So whether you’re shopping in a store, online or on your mobile device, you can do it all with confidence.

Your network has you covered

When you use your payment card, you’re supported by a payment network that’s designed to be secure and smart.  

Keeping you protected

Compared to cash or cheque, payment cards are the safest way to pay. Their multi-layer security safeguards you against unauthorised transactions. Payment cards also leave a trail, unlike cash, which financial institutions can follow to trace and recover your money. But you also play an important part when it comes to your safety, by monitoring your transactions, keeping your card safe and your PIN secret.

Protecting you in every way

A Personal Identification Number (PIN) works with your EMV chip to keep your money secure every time you use your Mastercard.

EMV (Chip Technology)

A microchip in your card safely houses all your data and encrypts every transaction for greater security.

Emergency card replacement and cash advance in the event your card goes missing.
