Why use contactless
There is no need to enter your PIN or sign for everyday purchases under GBP 100. The standard rate of conversion will be used at the time of the transaction, with an estimate of around USD 140 per transaction. Simply touch the reader with your contactless card to pay in seconds.
No need to find cash and no hanging around at the till for change or receipts unless you need one.
Contactless payments are safe and secure. You are 100% protected against fraud, just like you are with Chip and PIN payments. For extra security you may occasionally be asked to enter your PIN.
