The payment app on your phone might use contactless transfer when you tap the ‘pay’ button. You won’t see an option to enter a pin, and it won’t say other security measures like “Do you want to use another payment method?” but only one prompt says, “Feel free to enter your PIN.”
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says that approximately 15 million credit and debit cards have been issued since the launch of near-field communication (NFC) technology in October 2008, with around 1.4 million cards being used annually.
What is contactless card processing?
A contactless card can be used for purchases where a transaction is not required, such as from a vending machine or parking meter. The money paid through this transaction is automatically deducted from the merchant’s account once purchased. This means that payment information will only be passed between the customer and the bank once the transaction has been completed.
