You can now use a Visa debit card to shop online

BGL BNP Paribas and Visa are launching a new payment card in Luxembourg: the Visa Debit card. This new card allows you to make purchases online and in stores, both in Luxembourg and worldwide, while simplifying the management of your account thanks to the immediate debit feature.

Visa Debit is now available at BGL BNP Paribas and is accepted worldwide. It offers a far wider range of benefits than a standard debit card:

  • Spending management – keeping track of your budget is a breeze because payments are immediately debited from your account.
  • Online purchases – with Visa Debit you can shop online with peace of mind thanks to insurance covering non-compliant delivery and non-delivery of goods purchased over the internet.
  • International payments and withdrawals – the new card allows you to make payments and withdrawals worldwide, wherever Visa cards are accepted.
  • Free withdrawals – from BGL BNP Paribas ATMs and from BNP Paribas Group and partner ATMs abroad.
  • Mobile payments – contactless payments using a connected device (smartphone, smart watch).

At the new card’s launch, Romain Girst, Head of Retail Banking at BGL BNP Paribas stated: “We believe it is important to listen to our clients. They asked us for a debit card they could use abroad and we are therefore delighted to offer them the Visa Debit card, which constitutes a real innovation for the Luxembourg market. The new Visa Debit card will truly be an asset for our clients; it will allow them to better manage their spending and shop at their favourite stores, online and throughout the world. This card is a key addition to our wide range of payment cards.”

“The Visa Debit card is accepted worldwide in over 200 countries and territories, at 61 million merchant locations, which makes it the most accepted debit card worldwide. This is great news for consumers in Luxemburg, as it will allow them to have access to another payment method fitting different payment habits. We will work on developing this offer for more and more people in the coming months and years”, explained Jean-Marie de Crayencour, Country Manager of Visa for Belgium and Luxembourg.

The Visa Debit card can now be ordered directly using the BGL BNP Paribas Web Banking app or by calling Client Service on (+352) 4242-2000.
