Do you have to press the Credit button at an EFTPOS terminal when purchasing something using an asb visa debit card in NZ?
If the salesperson asks me if I am paying by cash or credit, do I say credit and the salesperson pushes the Credit button on their terminal and I press the Savings button on my terminal?

You press the Cheque or Savings (depending on what account is linked to what) when using on an EFTPOS terminal in NZ. This is because the Visa Debit is linked to your bank account.

And if it's a place like PB Tech, make sure to advise them you are paying by EFTPOS when they see the Visa logo, or they may charge you the credit card surcharge.

If you want to pay from the account you push CHEQUE in New Zealand. If you have a card like mine which has credit, cheque, savings all loaded then you select whichever you want to use.

I haven't seen someone pushing the "Cash" or "Credit" button for me in years now. Most of the machines have a keypad for the customer, and if not the machine is passed over.

What's interesting is the number of machines with a reader on the customer side but the person handling still needs to use the merchant side to swipe/insert the card.

Cheque.

It's odd - NZ is the only place I have ever shopped where the card system does not automatically know the answer from the data on the card.

What about the new contactless paywave visa debit cards from asb?
Do they automatically know which account to use when you wave the card?

Yes they process as credit so the merchants pay fees for no gain for the customer like a credit card where you get rewards and interest free time.

When you set it up you should be able to select the account you want to use for contactless payments and it will use that one automatically

I've noticed that too and I'm about to insert the card then the person is shoving her hand towards me and I'm like: "Don't I just insert the card on this side?"

And the ASB VisaDebit payWave system still don't work at Countdown stores which is frustrating for when purchasing one or two items only... I guess they just don't want to be stung with credit card fees!

Why when its a system provided by Mastercard or Visa?

Last time I was there getting cat food and red bull I decided that next time if the asb visa debit doesn't paywave it will be cash with my biggest note.

That's because very few countries offer the ability to have cheque, savings and credit card all on the same card. All 3 buttons will work on my Visa.

Is this for the self-service checkouts? If so, they may retaliate and spew out all your change in coins! :P
