BNI VISA Signature Issued With Contactless Technology

Jakarta, 27 June 2019 -- As a form of joint commitment to provide the best offerings to priority customers, today PT Bank Negara Indonesia (Persero) Tbk (BNI) in partnership with PT VISA Worldwide Indonesia launched the BNI VISA SIGNATURE Credit Card in Jakarta. This product is here to provide a new experience in transactions with pinned contactless features, which allows cardholders to make payments more quickly. With this contactless feature, the card holder only needs to bring the BNI Credit Card closer to the EDC machine that has the pay wave or contactless logo, and then the transaction can be completed instantly in seconds.

The Consumer Business Director of BNI, Tambok P Setyawati and the President Director of PT VISA Worldwide Indonesia, Riko Abdurrahman ushered in the birth of the BNI VISA SIGNATURE Credit Card with a variety of added values. In addition to the contactless feature, this product also has a range of premium benefits that are in line with the wants and needs of the growing class of society (Affluent) in Indonesia. 

Equipped with the contactless feature, BNI VISA Signature Credit Card holders can enjoy the convenience and security of transactions. Through the Visa PayWave platform, which uses EMV chip technology, transactions are safer because transaction data is more protected, so that the card or device does not need to be free from consumer grip, in order to reduce the risk of loss or duplication. PayWave Visa transactions are processed through the same reliable payment network as card transaction networks that use magnetic stripes and EMV chips.

By accepting transactions throughout the world (world acceptance), BNI VISA Signature Credit Card holders can also enjoy the experience of transacting abroad. That includes VISA global priviledge services, VISA Digital Concierge, and enjoy exclusive access at the BNI Executive Lounge which is available at a number of airports in Indonesia.

Tambok P Setyawati said, through the launching of BNI VISA Signature Credit Card, BNI is committed to always innovate and provide prime services for all customers. Through this card, card holder can enjoy convenience in transactions and get a variety of benefits from larger payment facilities and is equipped with various benefits and rewards.

"Cardholders will get cashback from their overseas transactions, while for transactions within the country, cardholders will be spoiled with double BNI Reward Points bonuses. Therefore, we are very pleased to be able to partner again with VISA to take advantage of its extensive network in providing exclusive access that can be enjoyed by our customers throughout the world," he said.

The President Director of PT Visa Worldwide Indonesia, Riko Abdurrahman said, VISA is very pleased to collaborate with BNI to launch the BNI Visa Signature Credit Card which is equipped with contactless payment technology. Cardholders can buy their daily necessities with just one tap, offering a fast, safe and comfortable paying experience wherever they are.

“Contactless payment is more popular in many countries around the world so we hope that cardholders can be more confident to do non-cash transactions at home and abroad," he said.
