Debit cards at Verifone POS terminals

We wish to advise that there is currently an issue at some merchant locations, as a result of a software update, on their point of sale devices. Unfortunately, this is resulting in cards issued in 2019 (debit & credit) being declined. If you experience an issue with your debit card, you can:
* Split your transaction in two to allow for Contactless transactions. 
* Enable Google Pay, Samsung Pay, or Apple Pay on your mobile phone.
* We also recommend that members have cash on hand as a back up until this issue is resolved.

Learn more about this issue on the Interac website.
