Contactless is one of the latest developments in payment technology, continually proving popular for both customers and merchants.
Contactless payments reduce transaction times by allowing customers to make payments of up to £30 with ‘tap and go’ technology and without the need to enter a PIN number.
A contactless accepting terminal maintains a high level of security whilst improving the convenience of payments, resulting in reduced queues and better quality service.
The level of security is upheld by occasionally prompting a customer to enter their PIN in order to ensure they are the cardholder.
