Now containing microchip technology, the enhancements protect customers against card fraud.
Additionally, the new card enables ‘touch and go’ technology, allowing customers to make transactions much quicker.
The new visa cards were launched in Port Moresby on Thursday night by BSP Group CEO, Robin Fleming.
“And it is important for PNG to be able to have a world class system,” said Fleming.
“Using a Visa Debit card, which means you’re able to access all forms of transaction, IPG, Internet Gateway, able to use it overseas, you can use it internationally, use it locally for IPG, use it for other internet types of purchases and use it for all types of payment system purchases.”
BSP ambassador and PNG Kumuls captain, David Mead, was also present, mingling with guests and posing for pictures.
Guests at the launching were also assisted in applying for new Visa Cards while non-BSP customers also signed up for new accounts.
