If you've got a contactless card reader, your customers can make quick and simple payments. They just need to tap their card onto the reader, without having to put it into the machine or enter their 4 digit PIN.
Card payments are becoming more and more popular, in fact, it was reported by the UK Cards Association that more than 108.4 million contactless devices were in issue in the UK in April 2017, and 416.3 million contactless transactions were made the same month.
Customers are becoming more and more used to using the technology, and it's even becoming more commonly used by train, tube and some bus companies too, as well as in shops, restaurants etc.
Every Payzone card machine is contactless enabled.
The contactless payment limit is currently £30.
Contactless cards have a chip inside them. This uses radio frequency identification (RFID) or near field communication technology (NFC) to securely communicate with the card machine.
If your customer has an iPhone or Android Smartphone or device, they can setup them up to be able to make payments using these too.
Like with a contactless card, they can just tap their device onto the reader to make a payment.

Instead, they present the card to the machine by holding it above the terminal screen, allowing the chip to send data to begin the transaction.
Our card machines then pick up this signal and transmits the purchase information.
For Apple Pay and Android Pay, instead of using the physical payment card, customers can instead use their iPhone or smartphone to make payment.
