day, more banks are adding contactless technology to their Visa debit and Visa credit
cards. Just look for the contactless indicator on the front of your current Visa

they have in place or keep an eye on the press for a contactless Visa card that
you can apply for.
Using your contactless Visa card is easy. Simply look for the contactless symbol
found at points of purchase in retailers nationwide. When you’re ready to
make your purchase, hold your contactless Visa card in front of the contactless
reader and, in less than a second, it will confirm whether your purchase has been
accepted. You can quickly pay for anything £20 and under and, as an added
security measure, you will occasionally be asked to provide your PIN.
Many retailers already support contactless Visa payments, and more are joining all
of the time. Supporting retailers are likely to be found where purchases £20
and under are frequently made, such as restaurants, newsagents, and cafes. Simply

Contactless Visa cards use the same secure technology as any other Visa chip and
PIN cards. For a payment to be made, your retailer must enter an amount for you

in order for a transaction to be made, you must hold your card directly in front
of the reader at precisely the right time.
Contactless card and mobile payments are set to change the way you pay.
