What is a contactless card?

Contactless is an additional feature on your debit card or credit card that provides you with another choice to pay at point of sale. We are now issuing debit or credit cards with contactless cards as standard to all eligible customers.

Simply touch the contactless reader with your card to pay for anything that's £100* or under, in less than a second. There's no need to insert your card into the reader or enter your PIN. Contactless is accepted at a growing number of high street supermarkets, chemists, fast food restaurants and coffee shops.
