Contactless cards

Contactless payments with your card

Make a contactless payment quickly and securely for items up to 30

Using your contactless card is a fast, easy and secure way to pay for purchases of 30 or less like a coffee, lunch, travel or a newspaper - in less than a second! They are becoming more popular and are available with many retailers accepting contactless on a daily basis.

Here are a few of the benefits

  • It's fast - Touch your contactless card against the card reader to pay for purchases under 30 in seconds
  • It's easy - With contactless there is no need to use cash, simply tap your card on the card reader
  • It's safe and secure - Contactless payments are safe and secure and have the same protection as CHIP & PIN payments

You can make contactless payments with your card and to trigger this all you need to do is buy something using chip and PIN.

We limit contactless payments to 30, and from time to time you might be asked to enter your PIN into a chip and PIN machine as extra security. If your PIN is entered incorrectly three times in a row, your card will block and contactless payments will switch off automatically.

Contactless payments are as secure as chip and PIN and you get exactly the same money-back guarantee if you’re ever a victim of fraud.
