Contactless is a quick-and-easy payment option that saves you time at the till. All it involves is holding your card up to a reader for a couple of seconds while your payment goes through. You don't even have to put in your PIN.
You can take advantage of this option at participating retailers, on any transaction under £30 – whether you're buying food or clothes.
You may already have a credit card that enables Contactless payment – they have a wave logo (as on the card pictured above). There's no complicated activation process either; you just need to have used it at a cash machine or during a Chip & PIN transaction.
