What is a contactless payment?
A contactless payment is a safe and quick way to pay without touching a pin pad or another merchant device. Contactless payments include payment through mobile wallets, QR codes, “tap-and-go” cards, or Pay by Link.
How do customers pay using contactless payments?
One of the easiest ways customers can pay using contactless payments is by using mobile wallets on their smartphones. This may include downloading an app, creating an account, or entering a password, taking a photo of (or manually entering) a credit card, and creating some form of authentication, such as a pin or biometric scan.
What is the difference between NFC and contactless payments?
Contactless payments can use a variety of technologies including Near Field Communication (NFC) and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). While the technologies differ, both are used to communicate wirelessly and securely with a payment terminal to effectuate payment.
Are digital wallets a good contactless payment solution in a post-Covid world?
Contactless payments such as using digital wallets can reduce the risk of infection and are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The risk of infection is reduced because the customer does not need to touch a pin pad, provide a signature, or touch any of the merchant’s hardware.
