A. When you opt for this facility, your cumulative transaction limit is RM250. This could either be 1 transaction or multiple transactions. If your transaction amount exceeds RM250, you will have to either enter your PIN or sign to authorise the payment.
Post entering your PIN/signing to process your payment, your transaction limit resets to zero. You can then use the contactless payment facility again.

A. Before using pre-authorisation for petrol transactions, you will have to inform the bank you want to activate this facility.
