What are contactless payment?
The contactless payment system entails carrying out transactions and making payments for purchases using a bank card (or mobile phone) that incorporates this technology, without having to physically swipe or insert the card in a card reader or ATM (*), thereby facilitating electronic transactions.
Touch your card to the contactless reader and follow the instructions on screen.
- It takes less time than conventional transactions.
- Faster payments, mainly for amounts under €20 since you don't need to enter your PIN. You will need to enter your PIN when using an ATM.
- It decreases card deterioration since there is no physical contact between card and reader.
- Increased security: no one else handles your card and it's never out of your sight.
- Easier: to make small everyday transactions (buying bread, a newspaper, coffee, etc.), since you don't need to carry cash or change.
