How will contactless card machines benefit your customers?
If you want your business to stay relevant in today’s fast-paced business world, you have to give your customers what they want. In this case, what your customers want is to pay in the fastest, easiest and most efficient way possible – and that means contactlessly.
By investing in a contactless card terminal, you can boost transaction speed for convenient, hassle-free payment. What’s more, you can avoid the build-up of long queues and dissatisfaction at the checkout – ideal for both your customers and your staff.
How do contactless payments work?
Contactless payment systems use radio-frequency identification (RFID) or near field communication (NFC, e.g. Samsung Pay, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Fitbit Pay) to make secure payments. Transactions are twice as fast as conventional cash, credit, or debit card sales.
The embedded chip and antenna enable consumers to wave their card, fob, or handheld device over a contactless card terminal at the point of sale. Contactless payments work in close physical proximity. This is not like mobile payments – which use broad-area cellular or WiFi networks and do not involve close physical proximity.
The future of contactless card readers.
Banks and card networks are even willing to promise that any fraudulent contactless transactions are refunded. This is because the benefits of contactless – including the proven standard of security – far outweigh potential losses.
This is one of the reasons that customers are starting to feel more comfortable with contactless payments than ever before.
Contactless payments suit every type of business that sells items with a value of £30 or less, for quick and seamless transactions.
The UK monetary limit may be lifted in the future. This will make contactless card machines suitable for even more businesses – even those that sell high-value items at a lower frequency.

What is a contactless terminal?
A contactless terminal is a card machine that accepts various types of contactless payments, including: credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, Android Pay, Google Pay, Fitbit Pay, and other devices that use near field communication (NFC) or radio-frequency identification (RFID).
How secure is taking contactless payment?
Accepting contactless payments is secure, as the card holders Bank accepts liability for any fraudulent contactless payments if the card is stolen.
Furthermore, contactless payments have been developed using the same secure system as CHIP & PIN. Resulting in every contactless payment including a wide variety of robust security features which protect you and your information from any fraudulent activity.
How is contactless payment technology protected against the threat of fraud?
A merchant will not be held accountable for any fraudulent transactions. For example, if the card was used to make a contactless payment and is stolen, the card holders Bank will cover the customers payment. This is why contactless transactions are limited to £30 and only a limited number of contactless transactions can take place per day. This is to limit the card holder Banks liability in cases of any fraudulent activities.
Does it cost extra to take contactless payment?
Accepting contactless payments does not incur additional charges on a merchant account. We would advise that if you are unsure or may think additional charges are being applied to any contactless transactions, to speak with your Bank directly.
What is the contactless payment limit?
The current limit for contactless payments in the UK is £30 per transaction. In the future, it is possible that this cap may be increased.
