Going cashless is easy with Visa Debit.

Visa Chip Technology – Confidence in a Smarter World
Visa chip cards are not only more secure, they are also simple to use. Chip cards and terminals work together to protect in-store payments. A unique one-time code is generated behind-the-scenes that is needed for the transaction to be approved - a feature that is virtually impossible to replicate in a counterfeit card.
Better Money Management with your Visa Debit Card
With Visa Debit, payments are deducted directly from your bank account. Visa Debit card transactions are typically posted within 24 hours of your purchase, which is faster than when writing a check. You can access your up-to-date balance on your issuer's website or by phone. You also receive a monthly statement with all the details of your purchases, including merchant name, location, date, and amount, so it's easy to see where your money goes. With knowledge of where your spending goes, you are able to make better financial decisions than if you used cash to pay for your transactions. Most banks also show the transaction history via their online banking facility that can be accessed via their website or mobile app as applicable.
