Is Your Credit Card Contactless?
To determine if you’re the owner of a tap-to-go card, simply inspect the front or back of it for a wave-like or field symbol.
Contactless payment methods are a convenient and safe way to make your everyday purchases. As more stores begin investing in contactless payment terminals, you may want to know if your credit card can be used on them.
To determine if you’re the owner of a tap-to-go card, simply inspect the front or back of it for a wave-like or field symbol. This signifies that your card has contactless technologies. A matching symbol on a payment terminal or a prompt to tap your card also indicates that a store accepts these kinds of transactions.
If you have an older card, it may be time to ask your provider for a new one with this updated technology. In the meantime, using a mobile wallet is another easy way to limit contact with shared surfaces. For more information about contactless payment options, contact a local Vectra Bank rep today.
