A contactless payment facility means that you can pay for purchases that cost less than 25 euros quickly and conveniently. You do not need to insert your card into the payment terminal or key in your PIN.
All purchases exceeding 25 euros must still be paid by inserting the card into the payment terminal and keying in the PIN.
Contactless payments can be made at all payment terminals which carry the contactless payment symbol and are able to process contactless payments.
You can always use a card featuring contactless payment also in the traditional manner - and also for purchases which cost less than 25 euros. In this case, you insert your card into the payment terminal and key in your PIN.
How do I pay with my contactless card?
When you are paying with your card featuring a contactless payment facility for the first time, insert your card into the payment terminal and key in your PIN. This will activate the contactless payment facility on your card and you may now pay for purchases which cost less than 25 euros without keying in your PIN.
- When the cashier registers your purchase which costs less than 25 euros and asks for payment, hold your card close to the payment terminal.
- The payment terminal informs you of the authorised purchase with an audio and light signal. You do not need to key in your PIN.
- You will get a receipt for your purchase as usual.
