How contactless works and how to get it
Making a payment
Use contactless when you see this symbol
Touch your card on the reader to pay
The reader confirms your payment
You can use contactless wherever you see the symbol, both in the UK and abroad. It’s accepted at most retail stores, restaurants, food outlets, pubs, bars and many local newsagents. It’s also used on buses, trains, taxis and the Tube.
To help speed up the transaction, you won’t receive a debit card receipt unless you ask for one. The retailer will give you a till receipt as proof of purchase. We may occasionally ask you to enter your PIN, to prove it’s you using the card.
Just like Chip and PIN payments, contactless payments are taken from your account and will appear on your bank statement, and in Online and Mobile Banking if you’re registered.
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.
