What does contactless payment mean?
Contactless payment is the practical alternative to cash. As with it paying for your everyday purchases is even faster and easier. Simply briefly hold your contactless credit card up to the payment terminal and your payment has already been made. Up to CHF 40* even without a PIN code or signature.
The card and terminal are connected by NFC (Near Field Communication) and complete the payment process without any direct contact.
What are the advantages of contactless payments?
Contactless payment makes your daily purchases easier and liberates you from the tiresome search for small change. Collect valuable bonus points faster and easier when purchasing a magazine or snack.
Are contactless payments safe?
Your contactless credit card is a safe method of payment.
During the entire payment process the card never leaves your hand and therefore you always have control over your spending. The amount is only paid with close contact with the terminal and for amounts from CHF 40 you still have to enter your PIN code as well.
Where can I make contactless payments?
Contactless payment can be used worldwide anywhere you see the contactless symbol. In Switzerland this is the case at Coop and many other supermarkets, kiosks, ticket machines and new points of acceptance are being added constantly.
