Contactless payments

What does contactless payment mean?

Imagine being able to buy a coffee, sandwich or even a train ticket without entering your PIN, using cash or your card.

Contactless technology lets you do exactly that – just touch your card to the reader or, if you have Apple Pay or Contactless Mobile, you can use your phone or compatible device.


You don’t need to enter your PIN – just touch your card on the reader.


Contactless payments appear on your bank statement, and in Online and Mobile Banking if you’re registered.


Payments are processed using the same secure Visa technology we use to process Chip and PIN payments.
