Business Security is a Priority.

Interac uses world-class security technology to keep businesses safe.

How your transactions are secure.

With privacy and fraud mitigation technology in place, Interac helps keeps your business transactions safe. 

We use EMV* chip processing to store and process data securely. That makes it nearly impossible to create counterfeit cards and protects consumers against fraudulent activity, including skimming, transaction repay types of fraud, and tactics like electronic pickpocketing.

  • Secure Chip and PIN payment processing.
  • Real-time payment from the cardholder’s account.
  • Card must be present at point-of-sale.
  • The number on the front of the debit card is just an identifier, not an account number.
  • Interac Zero-Liability Policy means cardholders are protected and will be reimbursed by their bank or credit union for fraudulent transactions beyond their reasonable control and in accordance with the terms of their client agreement with their financial institution.
  • A single card-based contactless transaction cannot exceed $250.
  • Cumulative spending limits set by banks and credit unions require a user’s PIN to validate and complete purchases.
