It is a flexible card: depending on the situation, you can have your purchase debited directly to your account, use the card as a charge card or credit card and, if needed, you can pay larger purchases in instalments.

Product Protection Insurance Covers card purchases with OP-Visa’s credit and debit facilities

Your purchases are insured regardless of whether you pay for them with the card’s credit or debit facility.

Coverage from blunders for 180 days

Your card purchases are covered for six months from the time of purchase in Finland, abroad and in online stores.

Free-of-charge insurance only for owner-customers

Product Protection Insurance is only included in the OP-Visa cards held by OP cooperative bank’s owner-customers and in joint cards linked to them.

Product Protection Insurance protects your card purchases from blunders

Sometimes all sorts of things happen, the phone slips from your hand or coffee spills on your laptop. Luckily, Product Protection Insurance covers card purchases made with OP-Visa from blunders for six months. You can enjoy this benefit for owner-customers by actively purchasing with your OP-Visa card.

Product Protection Insurance is a free insurance for owner-customers who have an OP-Visa Credit/Debit combination card, OP-Visa Gold, OP-Visa Platinum, or an OP-Mastercard. Joint holders of any of these cards are also entitled to the benefit, if the principal card-holder is an owner-customer. The insurance cannot be bought separately.

Coverage for your purchases, also those made abroad or online

Product Protection Insurance covers your purchases paid with OP-Visa’s credit and debit facilities in Finland, abroad and in online stores. The insurance covers purchases that conform to the terms and conditions for 180 days from the time when the card-holder acquires the item.

Product Protection Insurance may provide cover, for example, if your brand-new spectacles get broken, your new tablet falls to the floor or ground and gets broken or the screen of your mobile phone is damaged. The deductible is EUR 75, and up to EUR 2,000 is compensated for an individual item.

Insurance benefit for owner-customers

By becoming our owner-customer you are entitled, in addition to the Product Protection Insurance, to, for example, daily banking services at a lower cost and you earn value-for-money OP bonuses which offset banking service charges and insurance premiums. You can also buy, sell and switch many of our funds with no charges.

Product Protection Insurance is issued by Pohjola Insurance Ltd.

This way both the merchant and buyer have been reliably authenticated. You can identify the web shops that use the services with the Verified by Visa logo.

This is how the service works

  1. First make your purchases and then go to checkout.
  2. Choose Visa as payment method.
  3. Enter your card's number and expiry date.

  6. You receive confirmation of the payment completed successfully.
  7. You return to the merchant's website and receive a confirmation of the order.
  8. When you pay for your purchase using the credit facility, the amount debited will be shown in your next Visa bill. When you pay with OP-Visa Debit, the purchase will be debited directly to your bank account.
  • When paying for your purchase with your card, you can withdraw a maximum of 200 euros with the card.
  • The withdrawal fee for OP-Visa Credit is two euros plus 2,75% of the amount withdrawn.
  • Cash withdrawals with OP-Visa Debit are not subject to a charge.
