Easy access to your business checking account is important as a business owner. With a Royal Bank Visa® Business debit card, you can make purchases right from your account without the hassle of writing a check. A business debit card works much like a credit card. Simply swipe, sign and retain a receipt for your records.
Royal Bank Visa® debit cards are accepted at all merchants that accept Visa® and can be used to access cash at ATMs. As an added bonus, you can choose your debit card graphics from Royal Bank's available designs.
To help mitigate fraud, Royal Bank debit cards cannot be used for international purchases online.
If you haven't already, you will soon receive your new Royal Bank EMV Business Debit Card, also commonly known as a "smart" card or "chip" card. A Royal Bank EMV Business Debit Card provides added security and peace of mind when using your debit card.

Simply insert your EMV debit card into the EMV card terminal, enter your PIN or sign for the transaction and remove your card when the terminal indicates that the transaction is complete.
Can I still swipe my card?
Yes, you can still swipe your card at the payment terminal; however, if the payment terminal you're using is EMV ready, it will prompt you to insert your card in the EMV card slot.
