Carey Hilliard’s | from General Counsel
We’re excited to announce the rolling-out of Contactless Payments. It’s fast, convenient, and SAFE (touchless). Below, I’ll answer a few FAQ’s on the new payment devices.
Currently available at: Abercorn and Hwy. 80. Remaining stores coming soon!
What types of Contactless Payments do we accept?
All kinds: Including ApplePay, GooglePay, SamsungPay, FitbitPay, or any Bank NFC. Using these, you select your payment on your Smart-Phone, hover above the Reader, and blam!!-payment made!
Why is it safer?
Because during the Pandemic, the less you touch – the better. Paying at Carey Hilliard’s, you don’t need to touch anything – No signature and no questionable / scary Pin-pad.
Why did we switch from swiping cards, to chipping?
1. More security: Chip Readers use point to point encryption, so they’re more secure, because the data is never decrypted at the Store-level. When your card is inserted, a chip inside each Reader encrypts the card data, sends it directly to the processor.
2. It’s faster: Chip processing has become faster over the past 2 years, and now is faster than the old-way of swiping a card.
As always, we grateful for the opportunity to serve you.
