Want to know more? Here are some frequently asked questions.
How do I know if I can tap to pay with my card?
Look for the Contactless Indicator on your card to know if you can use it to tap to pay for purchases.
Do I actually have to tap my contactless chip card on the contactless-enabled terminal?
No. However, the card should be close (within 1-2 inches) to the Contactless Symbol on the contactless-enabled terminal.
How do I hold my contactless chip card to the contactless-enabled terminal?
The terminal reads the card best when it is flat over the Contactless Symbol, versus at an angle.
How long do I need to hold my contactless chip card to the contactless-enabled terminal?
You should hold your contactless chip card to the contactless-enabled terminal for 1-2 seconds.
Can I unknowingly make a purchase if I am in close proximity to a contactless-enabled terminal?
No. Contactless technology requires the merchant to first initiate the payment, and the contactless chip card must be held in close proximity (1-2 inches) to the terminal for a transaction to take place.
