Contactless Cards change the way you pay

Contactless Cards change the way you pay

If your credit/debit card has the NFC symbol then it's a contactless card.

So you can just tap to pay. No swiping. No inserting in a chip reader. Just tap and go. It's super fast.

Of course, the merchant needs an NFC reader. Many do but they don't advertise the fact.

For example, I tapped to pay for a croissant at a bakery in NYC and then for my medications at CVS.

Oh.. I almost forgot. NFC is Near Field Communication. It's a communication protocol with a range of just a few inches. Perfect for tap and pay.
