The Merchant's Guide to Contactless Payments

In-person payments are getting faster

Contactless payments get consumers through lines more quickly with a simple tap of a contactless chip card, mobile device or smart watch. Your terminal may already be capable of accepting contactless payments!

Why get contactless?


Offering customers the choice to pay with faster contactless chip cards or mobile wallets shows them you care about their time and security, and means shorter lines and more sales for you. Contactless payments take only a few seconds and are backed by the same strong security as EMV chip cards!
