Interac Flash® NEWSFLASH

Interac Flash® cards have arrived at WPCU!

Interac Flash® is a contactless payment enhancement to your WPCU debit card. It allows you to pay for everyday purchases more quickly, securely, and conveniently. All you need to do is hold your Interac Flash-enabled WPCU debit card in front of the reader at checkout. You can use it at merchants across Canada- wherever you see the Interac Flash logo. 

You can't pay for something accidentally by standing too close to a payment terminal, because your card must be less than 4cm away from the terminal and positioned at a certain angle before it will work.

The spending limit is $100 per transaction, unless set lower by the merchant you are purchasing from. Your daily point-of-sale limit still applies; however there is a set cumulative spend limit of $200. This cumulative spend limit is set by Interac and is the sum of all tap transactions made with your card since the last time you entered your PIN. For security purposes, once you have reached this limit, you will need to enter your PIN for the next transaction to reset this limit.


While there is the Interac Zero Liability program in place, you still have a role in protecting yourself from losses:

– Protect your PIN – When conducting transactions at an ATM or point-of-sale terminal always shield your PIN with your hand or body so others aren’t able to see. Never disclose your PIN to anyone, including friends or family, and never store it with your debit card.

– Always keep your debit card in sight when conducting a transaction at a point-of-sale terminal.

– Report a lost card – Notify your branch immediately if your debit card is lost or stolen to minimize any unauthorized transactions.

– Check your statements – Regularly check your statements or account activity to verify all transactions. If entries do not accurately reflect your account activities you should contact us as soon as possible.
