First Data support response time

We have received communication from fiserv, our First Data merchant services partner, that support response times will be impacted as a result of a temporary closure of a call centre due to COVID-19. They have indicated they do not anticipate service interruptions, but that members can anticipate longer than normal wait times for support by phone and email. Thank you for your patience.

Debit cards at Verifone POS terminals

We wish to advise that there is currently an issue at some merchant locations, as a result of a software update, on their point of sale devices. Unfortunately, this is resulting in cards issued in 2019 (debit & credit) being declined. If you experience an issue with your debit card, you can:
* Split your transaction in two to allow for Contactless transactions. 
* Enable Google Pay, Samsung Pay, or Apple Pay on your mobile phone.
* We also recommend that members have cash on hand as a back up until this issue is resolved.

Learn more about this issue on the Interac website.
