Tap and go with our Contactless cards

At Chelsea Groton, we’re always looking for ways to make transactions as secure and convenient as possible. We’ve had a longstanding partnership with Visa to provide purchasing power to our cardholders when paying for goods or taking cash out.

Our debit cards are safer to carry than cash, more widely accepted than checks, and honored at millions of merchants and ATMs worldwide. And now, we’re making our customer’s payment experience better than ever by providing Contactless Visa Debit Cards and offering features like Mobile Wallet.

Benefits of Contactless Cards:

  • Touch-Free — Instead of inserting the debit card in a terminal or handing it to a cashier, simply hold the card just above the terminal for the card to be read. 
  • Secure Processing — Each transaction is accompanied by a one-time security code that protects your card information.
  • Quick Check-out — Authorizations process more quickly than a standard chip card.

Using a Contactless Card is easy and fast:

  • At checkout, look for the contactless symbol on the payment terminal.
  • When prompted, hold your debit card above the contactless symbol or top of the terminal for 1-2 seconds.
  • Your payment is securely processed in seconds. Once confirmed, you’re good to go. It’s that easy!
