Further, to enable you to use the OneCard in a secure manner, a Personal Identification Number (OneCard PIN) for the OneCard will be issued.

6.5. For online purchases, we have ensured that the verification/authentication is not only secure but convenient. As a Cardmember, you can authenticate your online purchases using the following methods:
6.5.1 “Swipe to Pay” - We will send a notification on App whenever you make e-commerce purchases at domestic merchants. You would need to authenticate yourself using the App PIN or biometric credentials (as applicable) to access this notification. On successful verification, you will have to swipe to confirm the purchase. In case you do not wish to use this service, you can switch this off using the App controls.
6.5.2 One-Time Password (OTP): In case you wish to authenticate yourself using an OTP, you can always request an OTP during the purchase, based on which the transaction will be approved using the OTP sent on your registered mobile number. You shall at all times take all appropriate steps to maintain the security of the OneCard PIN. If you fail to observe the security requirements, you may incur a liability for FPL, who may, at its absolute discretion, issue a new OneCard PIN on the existing OneCard or ask you to create a new OneCard PIN from the App.
6.5.3 One-Click Payment - In case of certain merchants, you can enrol for “One-Click Payment / Visa Safe Click payment” by verifying yourself once only. Post enrolment, you will be authenticated by Visa using the device parameters used during enrolment. This service is available only on Android devices as of now. As a Cardmember, you will have to enrol for one-click payment at your preferred merchants who support such a One-Click payment mechanism. This service is brought to you by Visa and is subject to Visa’s Terms and Conditions.
6.6 In case you have added your OneCard for any subscriptions or recurring payments, then the registration for these services and/or first transaction will be authenticated using any of the above methods provided in Clause 6.5. The subsequent transactions will not be authenticated and will be approved based purely on the first verification. In case you wish to change your subscription plan at any time, you can do that directly from the merchants website or app. You should note that the subscriptions/recurring payments arrangement is subject to the following conditions set forth by the RBI, which may be amended from time to time.
6.6.1 Any modification to these subscriptions/recurring payments will require authentication using any of the above methods stated in Clause 6.5.
6.6.2 The maximum permissible limit for these subscriptions/recurring payments is Rs. 5,000. At the time of registering for the aforesaid payments, you can set a fixed rupee value or a variable range within the Rs. 5,000 limit which will be charged to your OneCard for the validity period of the subscriptions/recurring payments arrangement.
6.6.3 You will be given a pre-transaction notification at least 24 hours prior to the amount being charged to your OneCard. The pre-transaction notification will be received by you on your preferred mode of communication provided by you at the time of registering for this kind of payment arrangement.
6.6.4 This pre-transaction notification will contain the name of the merchant, transaction amount, date/time the OneCard will be charged, reference number of the transaction and reason for charge (which will be provided by Cardmember at the time of registering the subscription/recurring payment arrangement).
6.6.5 On receiving the pre-transaction notification, the Cardmember will have the facility to opt-out of paying for that transaction. If you choose to opt-out, the action will have to be authenticated using one of the methods provided in Clause 6.5. On receipt of intimation of such an opt-out FPL shall ensure that the particular transaction is not effected and subsequent recurring transactions are not effected as well. FPL shall send you an intimation to confirm the same to your preferred mode of communication.
6.6.6. You shall, at your sole discretion, have the option, to withdraw/revoke this subscription/recurring payments arrangement through the App or Website. Such withdrawal/revocation shall be authenticated using one of the methods provided in Clause 6.5. Any withdrawal/revocation from these subscriptions/recurring payments shall result in FPL not processing/effecting subsequent transactions for that particular arrangement. However, you may note that any pipeline transactions shall be effected.
“Pipeline transactions” shall mean those transactions for which pre-transaction notifications were sent to the Cardmember and the opt-out facility was not exercised, however the Cardmember chose to withdraw the payment arrangement before the transaction alert could be sent to or received by the Cardmember.
6.6.7 No charge shall be levied or recovered from you for availing this subscriptions/recurring payments arrangement.

Reward Points 🎁
By using your OneCard, you are automatically enroled in the OneCard Rewards Programme. When you transact with your OneCard, reward points are credited to your OneCard account depending on the transaction value and the purchase category. These reward points can be accumulated and further used to repay other purchases or redeemed for exciting offers shown in the OneCard App from time to time.
I. Earn Reward Points
a) Reward points will be credited only on regular purchases across any category.
b) Reward points will not accrue for money transfers, rent payments, cash withdrawals and digital wallet loading or top-up transactions. Sometimes, when you purchase a service/product on a digital wallet app which also offers in-app purchases, you may not get reward points, as it involves actual wallet load, which is then used to make payment to the merchant.
c) Currently, you will get 1 Reward Point on every purchase of Rs. 50.
d) For purchase amounts below Rs. 50, fractional points will be credited. For example, if you spend Rs. 25 on a recharge, 0.5 reward points will be credited.
e) Bonus Rewards: Valid and confirmed purchases across the Top 2 categories in a month are eligible for “5X” rewards, which means you would receive 5 times the reward points on those categories for that month.
- To qualify, you must make purchases across at least 3 categories in a month. From these, the top 2 categories would be eligible for 5X rewards.
- Points accruing due to 5X rewards will be credited to your points balance on the 10th day of the subsequent month. For example, if your purchases in July are eligible, 5X points will be credited to your points balance on August 10.
II. Redeem Reward Points:
a) No fee is levied if you wish to redeem reward points.
b) Rewards points can be redeemed including in the following ways:
- Pay with points: which lets you pay for previous transactions
- Redeem points for other offers/benefits as applicable from time to time
c) The “Pay With Points” functionality will be available against transactions that are less than two months old. For example, if you make a purchase on July 15, you can repay it with points till September 14 only (subject to available points balance).
d) On redemption, the rewards points so redeemed will be automatically subtracted from the accumulated reward points in your OneCard account.
e) To pay with points, simply swipe right on a transaction. In case available points are inadequate, a message will be shown to indicate how many points are needed.
