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 and 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 credit card reader, you will be prompted to select either “debit” or “credit”.
