Contactless payment offers an easy way to pay with a card, mobile device or smartwatch. It's secure, fast and touch-free – which is why it’s becoming more popular than ever.
Although there’s not a one-size-fits-all solution for your POS, there are some key things you should look out for when choosing your system.
Most modern bank cards, both credit and debit, are equipped with a built-in contactless chip. Look for the contactless icon on the card if you’re unsure.
You may have heard of Apple Pay, Samsung Pay or Google Pay – they allow customers to pay using a digital wallet connected to their mobile device or smartwatch.
Apps such as PayPal offer customers a way to pay or transfer money quickly and securely, using the app on their phone.
Almost anything can contain a contactless chip – from key fobs to smart cards or wristbands – but these are less common.
