Whilst the solutions are different, the small ticket transaction service in Australia has been specifically designed to complement Visa payWave and is designed to offer a range of payment choices and benefits.
Visa payWave is contactless technology that delivers benefits of speed and convenience whereby consumers can make a transaction by holding their card in front of a contactless reader, rather than having to swipe/dip their card or hand it over to a cashier. The convenience of payWave can be used for purchases up to the higher value of A$100.
The Visa small ticket transaction service is specifically designed for smaller value transactions whilst offering the convenience and speed of not having to provide a signature or PIN. The service is for transactions A$35 or less, regardless of technology.
