What is Contactless?
Is Contactless safe and Secure?
Encryption - unique to every purchase - protects your transaction data, and your card or device never leaves your hand, reducing the risk of card loss or counterfeit. What’s more, safeguards are in place to bill you only once if you accidentally tap twice. So your contactless-enabled credit, debit, or prepaid MasterCard® card or device is one of the most secure ways to pay.
What is the maximum amount I can pay with Contactless?
Contactless is a cash replacement product for transactions under EUR 25. After three transactions, you will be asked to input the PIN. This security feature will further reduce the risk. If your purchase is 25 EUR or over, you'll still need to provide a signature or PIN as you would with any other credit or debit card.
What is the benefit of Contactless?
Who accepts Contactless transactions?
Contactless is accepted globally at all kinds of merchants, including retail stores, fast-food restaurants, pharmacies, transit points of entry, and grocery and convenience stores. You’ll even find contactless in taxicabs and vending machines. Just look for the universal contactless symbol
How does it work?
- Tap your Money2Go MasterCard® against the reader, instead of swiping your card or inserting it into the terminal;
