Any way you tap to pay, Visa is there for you

When you tap to pay with your contactless card or payment-enabled device, checkout is safe, secure and touch-free. You can also choose the way you pay whether it’s with a contactless card, payment-enabled phone, smart watch or other device. Paying with your Visa contactless card or device is as simple as 1-2-3.

How do I know if my card or device can make contactless payments?

Visa Contactless Cards

If your Visa card features the Contactless Indicator ‍ on either the front or back, you can use it to tap to pay where you see the Contactless Symbol ‍ at many of your favorite stores.


Don’t have a contactless card? You can still tap to pay by loading an eligible payment card into your payment-enabled phone or wearable device.

Benefits of Contactless Payments




Contactless payment security

Tapping to pay with your Visa contactless chip card or payment-enabled mobile/wearable device is a secure way to pay because each transaction generates a transaction-specific, one-time code, that is extremely effective in reducing counterfeit fraud.

To make a payment, your contactless chip card or payment-enabled mobile/wearable device must be placed within 2 inches of the Contactless Symbol ‍ located on the checkout terminal in order for the transaction to take place (so you can’t pay accidentally).
