How Your Contactless Card Works

Contactless is an in-person payment option. Simply tap your card to the payment terminal instead of inserting or swiping. It's as easy as 1-2-3:

1. Look.

Find the Contactless Symbol when you check out at the drive-thru, grocery store, gas station – almost everywhere!

2. Tap.

Hold your card up to the contactless-enabled card reader (within 1-2 inches) and wait for the beep.

3. Success!

Your payment is processed in seconds.

Contactless cards use the same secure technology as mobile wallets such as Apple Pay and Google Pay. Except now, the technology is right in your card for added convenience.

Why Choose Contactless

Contactless is a globally accepted payment method that's easy and safe. Your card never has to leave your hands. Contactless is:

  • Faster at checkout – Tapping to pay is quicker than inserting your card into the payment terminal.
  • Safe and secure – Contactless provides the same robust protection as your card's chip technology.
  • Easy and accepted – Simply tap to pay whenever you see the Contactless Symbol at checkout.

And while contactless offers a new and improved way to pay, rest assured that you can still pay by inserting or swiping your card.
