Checking the buyer’s card

As a seller it is important for both your own and your customer’s safety that you check:

  • that the card holder’s signature is on the back of the card
  • that the card holder’s signature on the device screen matches that on the back of the card
  • that the card does not bear any traces of alterations
  • that the card has not expired
  • that the card has been issued by one of the card issuers listed in the general Terms & Conditions.
If either of these conditions is not met, the card is not acceptable as a means of payment.  

As an additional security measure, you can check the cardholder's ID to see that it matches the name on the card.

 

Debit/Credit

If such a card is inserted into the card reader, you will be prompted to select either “debit” or “credit”.
