Tap to pay with Visa contactless payments


What are contactless payments?

A simple and secure tap is all it takes to pay for the things you need. Visa contactless payments make it secure, convenient and touch-free.

Contactless payments are transactions made by tapping either a contactless chip card or payment-enabled mobile or wearable device over a contactless-enabled payment terminal. Cards, phones, watches and other devices use the same contactless technology. When you tap to pay checkout is secure, convenient and touch-free.


How to tap to pay?


Check for the Contactless Symbol visa-pay-button on the store's checkout terminal.


When prompted, bring your card or device within a few inches of the Contactless Symbol visa-pay-button. Depending on the terminal, you may tap on, above, or below the screen.


Your payment is securely processed in seconds. Once your payment is confirmed, you’re good to go!.

Any Questions?

What is the technology behind tapping to pay?
Tapping to pay uses short-range wireless technology to make secure payments between a contactless card or payment-enabled device and a contactless-enabled checkout terminal. When you tap your card or device near the Contactless Symbol, your payment is sent for authorization.
Is tapping to pay safe?

Yes. Here’s why:

  • Just like with a chip card, each transaction generates a one-time code.
  • You can’t pay accidentally—your card or device must be within 2-5 centimeters of the terminal for the sale to take place register. And you won’t be billed twice, even if you accidentally tap twice.
  • Tapping to pay with your Visa contactless card or payment-enabled device helps you avoid touching surfaces at checkout.
Where can I tap to pay?

You can tap to pay where you see the Contactless Symbol on a checkout terminal. Millions of places around the world accept contactless payments, including fast-food restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, retail pharmacies, vending machines, taxis and more.

What’s so great about tapping to pay with Visa?

Tapping to pay with a Visa contactless card is safe, easy and secure - perfect for places like fast-food restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops, vending machines, taxis and more. Tapping to pay is also secure because just like a chip card, each transaction is accompanied by a one-time code. Unlike cash, tapping to pay provides an electronic record of your purchases and gives you all the great functionality and convenience of a Visa card.

How do I know if my card or device can make contactless payments?
You'll see the Contactless Indicator  visa-pay-button  on your card. For your phone or other device, please see Apple Pay for VisaGoogle Pay for Visa and Samsung Pay for Visa
I heard people can “skim” information from a contactless card. What does that mean?

Skimming is very unlikely and limited in scope. For every contactless transaction, a transaction-specific code is created. Due to the nature of the code and additional fraud protection processes, it is difficult to use skimmed cardholder information for fraudulent purchases.

Can I be charged twice if I have more than one contactless card in my wallet?

No. Contactless-enabled checkout terminals will only communicate with one card at a time. If you have more than one contactless card in your wallet, you should tap the individual card you want to use, rather than tap your whole wallet.
