*Special Note for Interac Visa and Mastercard
In Canada, all the major banks issue Interac cards that often have a Visa or Mastercard logo on the card (see the image of the CIBC debit card below). These are not credit cards– they are actually hybrid cards.
These cards work like an Interac card when used in person. However, when used online– the processing is done through a credit card processing system. In the past, these cards did not work online or in Canada, which made it very confusing to customers and merchants. However, we have recently discovered that most cards with the Visa/Interac logo DO GET processed at our checkout, but Mastercard Interac cards DO NOT.
Please Note: If your Hybrid card does not work, then use a credit card.
