Tap to Pay with your Jovia Credit Card

Contactless cards are smart cards! They come with a small chip embedded inside them so the card can communicate with a contactless terminal when held near or tapped against the card reader during a transaction. Each contactless payment generates a transaction-specific, one-time code that protects your payment information, effectively reducing counterfeit fraud. So, it's convenient and secure.

It's easy

Simply tap your card within a few inches of the Contactless Symbol and let your new contactless Jovia Credit Card work its magic.

It's fast

With contactless cards, your transaction takes seconds! No more fumbling at checkout to insert your card or find cash.

It's secure

Each contactless transaction has a unique encrypted code, helping to protect against fraud and keeping your information safe. Plus, since your card never leaves your hand, there's less of a chance it will be lost or forgotten.

Follow these easy steps to help get you started with your contactless card
