Visa has introduced a contactless card measuring half the size of a traditional payment card.
The Visa Contactless Mini Card is issued as a complementary card with a Visa credit or debit card and can be easily attached to a key chain, eliminating the need to pull out a card from a wallet or a purse.
Like the standard-sized Visa Contactless card, the Contactless Mini Card has an embedded contactless chip and antenna that deliver the contactless functionality, as well as a magnetic stripe to ensure that consumers can use the card wherever Visa is accepted.
Elizabeth Buse of Visa’s US arm commented that, at half the size of a standard Visa card, it’s convenient to carry and simple to use. That ease of use will help continue the momentum behind Visa Contactless, as we offer more payment choices to cardholders.
