Stan­dard Bank has pre­sented a safer and more con­ve­nient shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence for its cus­tomers through the in­tro­duc­tion of the new Chip and Pin Debit card dubbed, ‘pay­ing has never been safer.’

Also called the Euro Mas­ter Visa (EMV) Debit Card, the new card pro­vides an en­hanced and far more se­cure shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence for the bank’s cus­tomers and fur­ther en­ables them to have ac­cess to over 40 mil­lion mer­chants in over 200 coun­tries around the globe.

The of­fi­cial launch of the Stan­dard Bank Mas­ter­Card was held on Thurs­day at the Royal Swazi Sun Golf Club.

Stan­dard Bank Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Mvuse­lelo Fakudze said the launch of the new cards, which was an out­come of many months of hard work, sweat and happy tears, af­firmed their com­mit­ment to con­tinue pro­vid­ing ex­cel­lent ser­vices and value for money for their clients.

Fakudze said the new cards come with an added fea­ture of hav­ing on­line pur­chas­ing ca­pa­bil­ity to en­able cus­tomers to shop on­line when­ever and wher­ever they are.

“Our new debit cards open the doors for our clients to ac­cess 40 mil­lion mer­chants in over 200 coun­tries around the world,” he said.

Fakudze said they have also distin­guished the cards to make it eas­ier for cus­tomers to dif­fer­en­ti­ate their ex­pe­ri­ences de­pend­ing on where they are in their fi­nan­cial life­cy­cle.“We have also recog­nised
