Home » Industry » Barclays Launches New Debit Card

Barclays Bank Zimbabwe has launched a new Chip and Pin VISA debit card that offers customers a fast, convenient and secure way to pay for goods and services at any Point-Of-Sale terminal.

The new chip debit card caters to customer’s evolving needs as it can be used for online shopping.

Customers can switch to the new chip card for free by simply taking their current VISA card and identity document to their nearest Barclays branch.

The new debit card uses new card technology to help minimise card-related crime. Each new debit card has a tiny chip embedded in it that makes the card difficult to clone or duplicate.

The chip card transactions will improve security against fraud compared to magnetic stripe card transactions and a merchant no longer has to visually inspect a card to check for holograms and other imprints.
