Contactless Payments* and Cashback

Make Contactless Payments - this great new benefit is a faster way for you to pay for the smaller everyday items in retail outlets wherever you see the contactless symbol. Contactless allows you pay for items totalling less than £100 by touching your card over the contactless terminal at the checkout.

Debit Mastercard supports purchases with Cashback (where Cashback is offered by Retailers) and can also be used for cash withdrawals at ATMs.

*Contactless functionality is available where your card has the contactless symbol (see below) and the retailer offers this facility.

How Does Contactless Work?

  1. Contactless payments of £100 or less can be made wherever you see the contactless symbol.
  2. Look for the contactless symbol on your new debit card. This means you can use your debit card to make purchases of £100 and under without having to enter your PIN making it quicker to pay for smaller, everyday purchases.
  3. The retailer will enter the amount and, once you confirm it is correct, you simply tap your card on the point of sale terminal when it is presented to you. For added security, you’ll occasionally be asked to enter your PIN in the normal way.
  4. Once the point of sale terminal confirms your payment, the transaction is complete. You may ask the retailer for a receipt.
