Could I have unknowingly made a purchase if I walk past a Visa payWave reader?
In order to make a purchase, your card has to be within 4cm of the payWave reader and held there for half a second. On top of this, the merchant has to enter an amount into the EFTPOS machine. This means your card won’t be able to pick up purchases if you’re walking near a reader.
