MasterCard PayPass Technology

KeyBank account holders are among the first in the country to receive debit cards featuring MasterCard® PayPass technology. It's quick, convenient, and secure.

With the KeyBank Debit Card with MasterCard® PayPass technology, there's no need to enter your PIN or sign for transactions, so you'll get through checkout faster. You can feel secure about your purchases because the KeyBank debit card never leaves your hands. It's convenient to use and there's no fee for using PayPass at the many locations that accept it.

MasterCard® PayPass works with wireless technology. An embedded chip and radio frequency antenna transmit payment details wirelessly, eliminating the need for you to hand your debit card to a merchant or swipe it yourself. Just tap your card on the PayPass terminal at selected merchants, wait for the signal, and go. There is no need to sign for purchases made with your PayPass debit card for transactions of $50 or less.*

Your new KeyBank debit card still has that familiar magnetic stripe, so you can still swipe it to make purchases at millions of locations worldwide. You'll continue to enjoy debit card features such as KeyBank ATM banking. For new Key customers, when you open a new Checking Account, your new debit card will automatically have MasterCard® PayPass technology.
