U.S. Bank customers in Colorado, Utah, Missouri, and California will now be issued debit cards with the Visa payWave contactless payment feature. Visa payWave technology enables customers to make a purchase by simply holding their card within two inches of a secure reader instead of swiping it.
U.S. Bank customers in Denver and Salt Lake City who already hold a debit card can request a new card with Visa payWave functionality; some customers in California and Missouri received an automatic upgrade to the new card. The new cards carry the same zero liability protection and have the same fraud monitoring U.S. Bank offers with all debit cards.
In addition to merchants who allow payWave payments, U.S. Bank is working with USA Technologies to install 400 contactless vending machines in the Denver area, to provide customers with more places to use their new contactless card.
