Since the time I have started using SBI Card Pay, it has been working really well for me. I often forget to carry my wallet, when I leave in a rush, either for shopping or to meet friends for a cup of coffee or simply remembering that I need to buy a few groceries when I am out for my evening walks. I might not have my wallet handy, but I always have my phone with me.
You know what intrigued me the most? For small purchases of up to Rs. 2000, you don’t even need to enter your credit card PIN. So, your un-planned local store shopping or movie and brunch date are easily taken care of. The next time you want to grab a quick coffee at Starbucks or avoid the long billing queues at Pantaloons or Shoppers Stop, you know you have SBI Card Pay for a quick, safe and contactless payment; here is the list of merchants where you can make instant payments using SBI Card Pay.
How to make payments using SBI Card Pay? One may ask.
It’s very simple!
Just register your SBI Credit Card for the SBI Card Pay feature on your SBI Card Mobile App. Unlock your Android phone & tap it on the POS machine to pay!
Also, take a note of these key points that are important when it comes to security and information.
– Notification Alerts: On successful payment, you will receive a payment confirmation SMS on your registered mobile
– Safe & Secure: Coming from a brand such as SBI Card, guess this doesn’t need much elaboration. Suffices to mention that SBI Card Pay authenticates every transaction with verification of your Android smartphone screen lock, fingerprint or PIN.
– Encryption: It encrypts the card information that is transmitted to the merchant’s POS machine. So, your card details are safe, and nothing gets shared or exposed at the merchant’s POS machine.
2020 has been a trying year so far. For every regular job/activity we used to do as a habit, we now pause and think. The very term ‘contactless’ is now the new normal, whether it is online lessons for kids to grocery shopping to Working from Home. I am happy with my latest find of making smart, instant & contactless payments. Do your own reading for more information on the SBI Card Pay feature or watch this video. Take a call!
