Contactless transactions conducted using a smartphone as a terminal are as safe as transactions conducted using regular POS-terminals in large chain stores.
Payment data are transmitted via the same secure payment network that encrypts your card details and protects every transaction. The seller does not have access to your card details.
No. As a buyer, you are not charged any fee for purchasing goods or services.
To authorise your payment, you must bring your card, smartphone, watch, or sticker to a reading device that accepts contactless payments 3–4 cm close. Also, to conduct a transaction, you must place your card, smartphone, or watch correctly. Only reading devices at authorised selling points can process contactless Visa card details.
First of all, make sure that the selling point accepts contactless Visa payments via Tap to Phone. The symbol will indicate that. If you tried to pay by tapping your smartphone or watch, but the transaction was unsuccessful, try to pay using your physical card.
