Frequently Asked Questions

How secure is Contactless payment?

Contactless cards use the same secure encryption technology as Chip and PIN, so your customers can be confident their card details will be safe.  In addition to the secure encryption for added protection from fraud, it’s not unusual for cardholders to occasionally be asked to enter their PIN to verify a transaction.

How are Contactless cards protected from the threat of fraud?

Instances of fraud on contactless cards are extremely rare. However, if a card is lost or stolen, cardholders are generally protected against fraud loss - they will not be liable for any fraudulent use and should report it to their card issuer as soon as possible*.
