Background information

Contactless - technology of the future.

Contactless payment is easy, quick and secure for your clients. And for you, too.

Contactless payment is unbelievably easy and time saving: The cardholder holds his card (e.g., contactless girocard, Mastercard or contactless Visa) against the terminal’s contactless reader. The payment is confirmed by an optical and acoustic signal. For payments of less than 25 euro, the payment is very quick, as no PIN-code authorisation is required.  For amounts over 25 euro, a signature or PIN code is required.
For your information, it is not possible to make an unintentional payment, as the card must be between zero to four centimetres of the screen for the transaction to be completed. The Tap&Go™ technology also gives your clients additional security, as the card never leaves their hands while the payment is being made.
Digitalisation has definitively changed client demands - including and especially their payment preferences. Verifone has compiled facts and figures from Germany and the rest of Europa relating to this in a trend report. Find out more at:
