First Internet Bank Offers Contactless Debit Card

Released on August 4, 2009

Posted in:

First Internet Bank (First IB) announced today it has begun issuing debit cards that include the Visa payWave (contactless) feature.  These contactless debit cards promise First IB cardholders a faster and easier check-out, with the same security protection given to traditional magnetic stripe cards.

Each First IB debit card enabled with Visa payWave is embedded with an advanced computer chip that uses radio frequency to perform the transaction.  By simply holding the First IB debit card with Visa payWave close to a contactless card reader, customers can complete a purchase transaction in seconds. The cardholder remains in possession of his or her card at all times and, for most purchases under $25, will not be required to sign.  In cases where the merchant does not accept contactless transactions, cardholders can still swipe the card, just as they always have.

Since its launch ten years ago, First IB has offered customers a lineup of convenient account access services – including a robust website with self-service features for anytime account access, and traditional magnetic stripe Visa debit cards as a secure alternative to carrying cash. The contactless debit card offering is the most recent enhancement to the Bank’s lineup of added value services. First IB has also introduced mobile banking as well as personal budgeting and account aggregation services in the past twelve months.

“First Internet Bank strives to be a leader in innovation, and the adoption of this card keeps First IB at the forefront of banking technology,” said Mr. David B. Becker, President and CEO.  “Studies have shown, and our employee pilot program confirms, that cardholders find contactless payments to be fast and easy. We are pleased to offer our customers this new feature for everyday purchases. It’s just another way we work to make banking easier for our customers.”

Seamless Experience - John, Arkansas

“I found First IB online. I was a little skeptical at first, but I couldn't have been more wrong! We were moving from MI to AR, working with a different realtor on each end, and First IB made the purchase of our new home seamless. The...mortgage we received is piece of mind for the future and we couldn't be more satisfied with the service... “

Best Lender Experience - Ryan, Arizona

“This was the first time I've used an online lender and I would definitely use First IB again...The local lenders warned that I wouldn't get personal service using an online lender and warned me against it. I'm glad I ignored them because my experience was one of the best I've had with a lender. I wouldn't hesitate to use this lender again!“
