What are contactless payments?
Contactless payments allow you to “tap to pay” at the grocery store, your favorite restaurant and the gas pump. This is secure, convenient, and touch-free.
How will I know if my card or device can make contactless payments?
Look for the contactless symbol at the check-out of your favorite merchant. When you are ready to go, simply “Tap to Pay”!
What does the contactless symbol look like?
How do I tap my contactless card or mobile/wearable at checkout?
It works best when your contactless chip card or payment-enabled mobile/wearable device is held flat over the contactless symbol, versus held at an angle.
What if I do not see the contactless symbol at a merchant terminal?
Simply insert your Visa Card into the payment terminal just as you currently do now.
Can I “Tap to Pay” from a mobile enabled phone or wearable device?
Yes! All you need to do is look for the contactless symbol.
Does every merchant have the touch-free, contactless payment option?
Not yet, in the U.S., thousands of merchants accept contactlesss payments. Contactless terminals can be found in supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants, and even vending machines.
What technology is used for “Tap to Pay” Visa Cards?“
"Tap to Pay” Visa Cards use short range wireless technology to make secure payments between a contactless chip card and payment-enabled mobile/wearable device. As soon as you tap your card or device near the contactless symbol, your payment is sent for authorization.
How are contactless payments secure?
“Each contactless transaction uses a one-time unique code that prevents counterfeit fraud. If a fraudster did get close enough to read a contactless card, they still would not gain access to the cardholder’s name or 3-digit security code. As a Visa cardholder, one benefits from multiple layers of security to prevent fraud before it can happen. Also, if there were ever an instance of fraud, with your Visa card you are protected with Zero Liability*.
How do I add my card information to my digital wallet so that I can use my phone or wearable device to pay?
