What is Contactless?
Contactless is a payment method you can use to make purchases by simply holding your card against a card reader at a point of sale. It can be used to make purchases below €30.
The card uses a secure radio signal, known as Near-Field Communications (NFC). It is powered when it comes into close contact with the reader.

How is Contactless different to Chip and PIN?
Instead of inserting your card into a terminal and entering your PIN, with Contactless you hold the Debit or Credit card against the reader and in less than a second, it will confirm whether the purchase has been accepted. A receipt is available on request.
From time to time we may ask you to enter your PIN.

As an extra precaution from time to time you will be prompted to enter your PIN to complete the transaction.
