Komercijalna Banka with its cards provides quick and contactless payments in trade without entering a PIN code for transactions up to MKD 750. For transactions over MKD 750 PIN code is required. This manner of payment is perfect to buy small things and helps in reducing the queues before cashiers, since the whole transaction takes a few seconds.
At present, contactless payment is available on the Debit MasterCard debit card and VISA Electron debit card of Komercijalna Banka.
Apart from others, a great advantage of the Debit MasterCard World debit card for individuals is that it allows cash-back when purchasing at points of sale („cash back“) as follows: - for trade up to MKD 10,000 per month: 0.4% of the trade realized, while for trade over MKD 10,000 per month: 0.6% of the trade realized.
Calculation of the cash back is performed on monthly basis and is paid out in form of a gift card, upon accumulation of MKD 1.000. Cash-back is not available for contactless transactions.
Older versions of the above stated cards which do not have contactless technology can be replaced in the Bank’s city-branches free of charge.
