The easier way to pay
Your contactless card is the simple way to pay in seconds for purchases of £100 and under, without entering your PIN. For security we will, from time to time, ask you to perform a CHIP and PIN transaction.
Look for the contactless symbol when paying for purchases of £100 and under.
Touch your contactless card against the reader.
A beep or a green light shows your payment is approved.
With a new card you'll need to do a Chip and PIN transaction before you can make a contactless payment. This ensures your card is in your hands and not someone else's.
