Interac Flash®

Just tap to pay and you are on your way!


Interac Flash is the contactless payment function that has been added to new Entegra debit cards. It allows you to pay for smaller everyday purchases quickly, securely and conveniently by simply tapping your debit card at checkout. Flash enables you to make a payment instantly, without having to insert your chip and use your PIN. You can continue to perform chip debit transactions with your Entegra debit card, but now have the enhanced functionality of Interac Flash for a convenient way to pay.

How do I use it?
Simply hold your flash debit card in front of the stores payment terminal at checkout. A beep and/or approved message on the payment terminal will acknowledge that your transaction is complete. Your purchase is then automatically debited from your Entegra account that you normally use for debit purchases.

Are there transaction limits?
All purchases have a transaction limit of $100.There is also a cumulative transaction limit of $200. Every time that limit is reached, you will have to insert your chip and enter your PIN. This will then reset your limit, providing an extra layer of security by limiting the funds that are available through Interac Flash.

How secure is it?
Interac Flash uses chip technology. Each transaction is unique, encrypted and unable to be copied. No personal information is ever sent during a transaction; only an encrypted payment code to complete your transaction and the card cannot be read by a device while in your purse, wallet or pocket.

From time to time, you will need to enter your PIN to verify you as the cardholder, even when you are within your transaction limit. This is an added security measure to ensure that your card is in your possession.
