Let’s dive in a little deeper and look at the card benefits in detail.
Enhanced Security for Online Shopping
The card features the 3D Secure facility – an additional layer of security to give you a better and safer experience when you shop online. Once you are done selecting the products you want to buy and provide your card information on the checkout section, you will be sent an OTP (One Time PIN). In order to complete the purchase, you need to provide this OTP. This helps verify that it is you indeed who is making the purchase and not someone else, thereby preventing unauthorised transactions.
Cashless, Contactless Purchasing
No cash, no problem. That seems to be the “modus operandi” of this card. You can now power through the checkout counter at any store that’s enabled to receive contactless payments via this card or through a mobile phone (Samsung Pay & Citi Pay). This is a secure and fast process, making it convenient for you to pay for your purchases. Simply tap to pay through your mobile phone and be on your way.
Easy Access to Cash
There will, of course, be a few situations where you will need to pay for your purchases in cash. In such cases, you can use this credit card to access more than 2 million ATMs both in Singapore and all over the world, and withdraw the cash you need.
