Tap to pay for a fast, easy, and secure way to checkout
Contactless cards are a new, fast and secure way to pay. Here is all you need to know to confidently tap and go.
Pay in seconds where you see the Contactless Symbol – way faster
than fumbling with cash
No need to insert your card or swipe it. A simple tap on the
contactless-enabled terminal is all it takes.
Contactless cards use the same trusted security as chip cards. Each transaction is
protected by a dynamic encryption that protects your payment information.
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 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 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 card to the contactless-enabled terminal?
You should hold your contactless 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 card must be held in close proximity (1-2 inches) to the terminal for a transaction to take place.
