Get the most out of your debit card:
Your CBD Mastercard Debit Card has Contactless technology which allows you to pay for everyday essentials
with the following options :
- Less than or equal to AED 300* - Tap and go without PIN
- More than AED 300 - Tap and go with PIN
* Mastercard has increased the acquirer limits from AED 100 to AED 300. Acquirers are still in the transition phase, hence some transactions may request for a pin along with a tap (for transaction of AED 100 and less than AED 300)
Simply tap your card on any Contactless
enabled device at merchants and the amount will automatically be deducted from your account without the
card ever leaving your hand. Tap, pay and go, with the benefit of knowing that even if you tap twice by
mistake, you can only be charged once. This technology also works internationally on PayPass enabled point
of sales machines.
The embedded microchip in your CBD Mastercard debit card enables "Chip & PIN" security which requires your card to be
inserted into a point of sales machine at the merchant side, and armed with your personal 4-digit PIN, you can
then secure a smooth and most importantly, safe transaction.
