If you don’t have to sign or enter a PIN, how secure is it?

Visa small ticket transactions are highly secure and subject to existing Visa Debit card security measures. Each small ticket transaction is still electronically authorised by Suncorp Bank at the time of purchase, hence subject to checking as in the case for a normal Visa Debit card transaction.

This service has been implemented in a number of countries including the U.S., Hong Kong and Japan. Data following the rollout in the U.S. has confirmed that there has been no incremental increase in fraud or chargebacks for small ticket transactions.
