Interac Flash

Interac Flash is a great way to pay for everyday purchases directly from your bank account using your debit card- just flash/tap and go. There is no need to swipe, insert your debit card, or enter your pin.

Card Set-Up:

  • When using your new debit card to pay for a purchase for the first time, ensure you pay using your chip and new PIN that was mailed to you. For Flash to work you must pay using your chip before you can use the flash/tap pay feature.
  • You will have already received your new PIN in the mail. If you would like to reset your PIN visit any Mainstreet branch or reset at a Mainstreet or Exchange Network ATM.

Security Features

  • As a security feature, you can spend up to a cumulative maximum of $199 over any time period, at which time you will be asked to insert your chip card and input your debit PIN.
  • There is a $100 limit per transaction. Purchases exceeding this amount will require chip card to be inserted and your PIN.

Getting on to online banking

  • Login using your new debit card by typing all 19 digits found across the front of your new card.
  • You will enter your existing online banking password in the password box.
  • If you would like you can click the box “memorize this card” - recommended only if you are on a personal computer and would like to not have to type your debit card in the future. Your browser may ask you if you would like to save/memorize your login and password - we recommend you do not select this option.
  • All of your account history, payees, bills, automatics, alerts, etc. have been transitioned over. In some cases, you will be prompted to reset your online banking security questions.
