Since the technology was introduced in 2007, Contactless card machines have revolutionised the retail experience. Last year alone, over £1 billion was spent in the UK through Contactless payments.
Contactless cards use short-range wireless technology which sends information to the Contactless payment machine. This is the same technology used by Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay devices. The transaction limit (currently £30) increases security for customers, while the speed of payment helps shorten queues so customers aren’t kept waiting. Many businesses like shops, cafés and small restaurants that sell low-cost items receive more sales due to the quick turnaround of their Contactless card machine.
Our Contactless card readers work straight out the box. So it doesn’t take long before you’re connected to any of the 90 million Contactless-enabled cards in issue.
Our card machines use Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) and Near Field Communication (NFC) to receive payment data from the chip in the card. This allows customers to pay securely with a quick tap of their card onto the Contactless reader. There’s no PIN number to enter, making it far quicker than a regular card payment.
Our card machines are compatible with all participating payment cards (VISA, Mastercard, American Express) featuring the Contactless logo. There’s no setup required – all of our terminals will accept Contactless card payments straight out of the box.
Every Contactless card contains a highly secure chip that helps to safeguard card details and protect both you and your customers from fraud. The chip ensures that the payment is a one-time transaction, making Contactless more secure than chip & PIN.
Customers are drawn to businesses that accept Contactless payments, so it’s important to advertise this service. We provide a window sticker with every card machine so you can advertise it in your shop window or sales desk.
Currently, the default Contactless limit is £30 per transaction. However the limit can be increased by up to £500 just by contacting the bank. The default limit makes Contactless particularly great for businesses where the average spend is £30 or lower, such as corner shops, cafes, smaller retailers and even some restaurants.
Contactless technology comes as standard with all of our card machines, so there’s no extra cost to your business or your customers.
