Introducing an all new experience with the Mastercard Debit Card
In addition to the Banco di Caribe Visa Credit Cards and MultiCard, the Mastercard Debit Card now also has the "Near Field Communication" (NFC) technology. This makes it possible for customers to use the Tap-and-Go payment option. If the payment terminal and the Debit Card have the NFC technology, the customer only has to tap the Debit Card on the screen to make a transaction. The Tap-and-Go payment option is mainly used for small amounts.
Activate or deactivate Tap-and-Go
The Tap-and-Go payment option is automatically activated when you first use the Banco di Caribe Mastercard Debit Card, whether it is a transaction at an ATM or at a payment terminal. Once the card is activated, the customer can use the Tap and Go payment option both locally and internationally where it is available.
If for some reason the customer does not wish to make use of the Tap-and-Go payment option of the Banco di Caribe Mastercard Debit Card, he can submit a request by sending a message via BdC Online to deactivate this option. He can also complete the form on the website or he can visit our office located at Kaya Grandi 22. If the customer wants to reactivate the Tap-and-Go payment option in the future, he can do so by completing the respective form online or at our office.
Tap and Go limit
Banco di Caribe customers can spend up to an amount in USD equivelent to 100 guilders per transaction with the Tap-and-Go system and up to a maximum amount in USD equivelent of 200 guilders per day. However, each bank has its own limit for their payment device. The lowest limit will be applied when paying via the Tap-and-Go system. The Banco di Caribe Tap-and-Go limit per transaction and per day also applies for transactions abroad.
