How is a contactless card used?

Your customer simply holds the contactless Mastercard or Visa card to the reader of your EVO card payment terminal, which displays this icon. The successful payment will then be confirmed on the display and you will receive your customer and dealer receipt as usual. A customer's signature or PIN entry is only required if requested by the EVO card payment terminal. As a rule, transactions of up to EUR 50 (depending on the card issuer, sometimes up to EUR 25) do not require a PIN or an additional signature.

With contactless payment, you are already well prepared for future payment procedures such as ApplePay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay, which are also based on the NFC (Near Field Communication) principle.

Can I also accept girocard contactless cards?

girocard contactless cards can currently be accepted at Ingenico card payment terminals. For all other manufacturers, the payment is processed via the chip card reader and authorized with a PIN or signature. The implementation on these devices is currently undergoing technical pilot testing and will be activated automatically at a later date without any additional costs.

How secure is contactless payment?

Contactless payment offers you the full security of the established EMV chip technology. The communication between EVO card payment terminal and card is carried out via Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. Communication is only possible if the card is held very close to the EVO card payment terminal (maximum distance of 4 cm). This excludes accidental payments. The card must also be uniquely identifiable. It is not possible to hold several cards at the same time to the contactless card reader and thus make a payment.

How do I recognize a contactless card?

Pay attention to this symbol on the card. More and more cards in Germany, Europe and worldwide are equipped with the contactless payment function and make it easier for you to pay at the point of sale:
