What is Chip & PIN?

Your CBD Debit Card has an embedded microchip 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.

How does Mastercard Contactless work?
1. Look for the contactless symbol when paying for small everyday purchases that are AED 300 or less.
2. Simply touch your contactless card against the reader.
3. A beep or green light shows your payment is processed.
4. Once your payment has been confirmed you will be offered a receipt.
What is Mastercard Contactless Technology?

Your CBD Mastercard  Debit Card has Contactless technology which allows you to pay for everyday essentials with following options:

  • Less than AED 100 - Tap and go without PIN
  • More than AED 100 and less than AED 300 - Tap and go with PIN
  • Above AED 300 - Chip and PIN without Tap and go

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.
