Simply tap and pay with Sacombank contactless payment cards


From 07/07/2017, Saigon Thuong Tin Commercial JS Bank (Sacombank) has cooperated with Visa Company and Mastercard Company to launch “Sacombank contactless payment technology: Simply tap” based on the international standards in order to optimize utilities, enhance confidentiality as well as shorten payment time for Sacombank’s cardholders. Especially, along with the launch of the new payment technology, Sacombank officially introduced “new appearance” of its card products with a well-designed brand image.

Mr. Nguyen Minh Tam, Deputy CEO of Sacombank said that “Sacombank Contactless systems are modern POS machines and contactless cards that enable cardholders to simplify the payment procedure by touching or gently waving contactless cards against the symbol on POS terminal. Especially, it is a plus for this technology due to being more secure when cardholders simply tap and pay without swiping cards. In addition, with the payment from and below VND 400,000, cardholders do not need to sign bills.”    Following the strategy of being the modern retail bank, Sacombank has planned with a roadmap to develop its payment system and in the past 3 years, the Bank launched modern POS terminal accepting contactless cards. At present, the Bank aims to deploy this product at supermarkets, fast food chains such as Aeon Citimart, KFC, etc. in order to get clients’ feedback for improvement before widely launching at merchants accepting Sacombank’s cards.

Regarding card products, Sacombank has used contactless technology in line with a change of the brand image on credit cards, classic and gold international payment cards. There is no image change on premium cards but contactless technology applied. Clients who register for new cards will gain experience to use this modern payment technology. Sacombank contactless card is also used at any POS machine.   

The new image identity of Sacombank’s cards arises from the idea of using letter “S”, representing the name Sacombank, well-designed to show the Bank characteristics: dynamism, flexibility and innovation that meet higher demands of clients. Along with brand image change for Visa and Mastercard credit cards, classic and gold international payment cards, Sacombank will also change the brand image for JCB cards in quarter III/2017.
