Interac Flash


The fast, secure way to use your own money.

Interac Flash is Canada’s first contactless debit solution. It allows you to pay for everyday purchases quickly, securely and conveniently by simply holding your Interac Flash-enabled Member Card in front of the reader at checkout. You can use it at merchants across Canada – wherever you see the Interac Flash logo.

How do I use Interac Flash?

Here’s how to make an Interac Flash transaction using the contactless feature on your Interac debit card:

1. Look for the contactless symbol (4 wave lines) on your Interac debit card. This means your debit card can use Interac Flash contactless debit technology.

2. When making a purchase in-store for less than $100, look for the Interac Flash logo on contactless terminals at check out.

3. When the terminal prompts you for payment, hold your card in front of the terminal.

4. Wait for the beep and/or “approved” message on the terminal. This means your transaction is complete and your purchase was automatically debited from your chequing account.

Note: Single transactions cannot exceed $100. Cumulative purchases cannot exceed $199. The cumulative limit does not reset each day, only over time. A cardholder may not reach their cumulative limit for days/weeks depending on how often the flash is used. If either of these limits are reached, the cardholder will be prompted to enter their PIN.
